Easy, cheap & a great small gift
I love to read and I know there are more book lovers on CutOut&Keep. I usually lose my bookmark or it tears or I just don't use one and forget where I have read last. So I made this little bookmark and remeber that what I added at what you need is simply what I used. You can go and be creative using seed beads, real shells, satin ribbon, organza ribbon or you can even put a little bell at the end, use your imagination.
Enjoy.

    Know we do the reverse. Measure the 25cm from the knot adn then make a knot. Know you first thread the beads and lastly you add the charm to the end by using your neddle and thread.

    If you do not have copper wire or you still can't seem to get the beads on the ribbon, cut the ribbon to a sharp point as on the photo.

    Cut of the ends and sit down and read!
