A special book calls for a special bookmark. I have a collection of bookmarks that I've used for ages. They're just made of paper and nothing fancy, but they all have sentimental value to me. My favorite bookmarks have seen a lot of use over the years and are looking a bit shabby and worn, but I still use them because I like them so much. I saw this idea on Pinterest for these pretty flower and ribbon bookmarks and decided it was time for some new ones These bookmarks are so sweet and pretty, don't you think?
Here's what you'll need:
ribbon, about 12 inches long
Cut out the flowers from the felt. I used this flower pattern.
Glue a button to the center of the flower.
Glue a piece of ribbon to the back of the flower.
And you're done! Ta-da! Easy peasy!
I was worried that the flower part of the bookmark would be too thick, especially with two layers of felt, but it wasn't and doesn't damage the spine of the book. You can use any type of ribbon too. The pink ribbon I used is a very light weight ribbon and the blue one is thicker.
So now that you know how easy these cute little bookmarks are to make, will you be making some for yourself? Wouldn't one of these be nice to include as a gift with a special book? I think kids would have fun making these too.
Inspired by this pin for ribbon bookmarks.
