Bookmarks are something I never have around. For long times my boyfriend and I used paper scraps like bills to mark our reading process. Therefore I wanted to make bookmarks for us, to have something beautiful in hand while reading.
For this bookmark I used three different kinds of washi tapes, all in red and white to be consistent, white cardboard, white ribbon and the beautiful little labels of Ormolu.
I hand cut a paper card from the cardboard, taped three stripes of washi tape in the middle and two on the edge and taped the overlapping rest to the back. Then I cut one label out and used photo glue pads to attach it to the middle of the bookmark.
To secure the ribbon, I punched a hole into the upper end of the bookmark with my Crop-A-Dile Punch (from We R Memory Keepers). Then I pulled the closed end of the double layed ribbon through the little hole and afterwards the open ends through the loop and pulled till it was fixed. Later I tied a knot in the open end of the ribbon, so the ribbon doesn’t hang loose.
As final step I rounded the corners of the bookmark with my Crop-A-Dile – Corner Chomper Tool (from We R Memory Keepers).
Hope, you are inspired to make a bookmark yourself. If you have any questions leave a comment.
