This is on how to make ribbon bookmarks (Perfect for bookworms like me)
- Decorative Ribbon at least 1/2 in. wide
- Elastic Hair Bands
- Decorative Buttons
- Needle & Thread and/or Sewing machine
Cut the ribbon into 18 inch strips. (This is for an average sized book. If you need a bookmark for a large book, you may want to measure around the book first and add length to the ribbon.) Fold one end of the ribbon over 1/4 inch. Fold it over another 1/4 inch and stitch across. You can do this by hand, or use a sewing machine. I used a zigzag stitch on my machine for a special touch. Repeat for the other end of ribbon, adding the elastic hair band before you start folding to attach it to the ribbon. Now we have one end of the ribbon bookmarks done. Half way there! Use your needle and thread to attach a button to the other end of the ribbon. And we’re all done (wasn't that fast!) hope you loved this craft as much as I did!
