Here's how to make these handcrafted bookmarks from sari silk ribbon. A perfect gift for your favorite bookworm, yoga loving or not!
You will need the following...
Sari silk ribbon.
You can find some great suppliers on Etsy. This is a supplier I love
I was lucky to find a bunch of these in a thrift store but you can also find them on Etsy and Amazon
Beads & charms.
You may well have these in your craft stash at home
Another crafting staple
Gather your materials!
Thread your choice of beads on the lariat. Broken junk jewelry is a good option! Leave a small loop at the end of the lariat for your ribbons to thread through.
I cut 10 inch lengths of ribbon to create a 5 inch ribbon tail on my bookmark
Secure tightly with a double knot and trim. (Perhaps a dot of clear nail polish to secure if you like)
Thread a loop of embroidery thread through the lariat and take the two embroidery thread ends back through the loop to secure.
I had a bunch of tiny charms gifted to me so secured one on the end of the embroidery threads. Choose a flattish charm just in case it ends up resting inside the pages of the book!
Ta Da! Enjoy your reading time!
