Homemade Crafts: Sewn Ribbon Bookmarks
After many, MANY times of finding one of my husbands books stuffed with a piece of tissue marking his place, I decided he needed something a little more sturdy and permanent to hold his place. So, I set to work on creating a little something to help him out.
These sweet little bookmarks are super easy to create and are sturdy enough to last. No more tissues holding place for this family!
I ended up creating a simple one from the Frayed Thread Ribbon in Pewter for my hubby that I kept plain. I’m assuming he’d want something a little more masculine. Baby girl got one in a pretty Turquoise Chevron/Twill that I let her decorate herself! She really went to town with my stash of silk ribbon flowers!
But my favorite has to be the one I created for myself in the White Faux Linen Ribbon. It’s a little bigger to accommodate a magazine, and has a classic look, decorated with a simple silk ribbon flower, as well.
If you’d like to see how to create one (or MORE!) for your own summer reading list, check out the video tutorial below.
