;Dyou need like 70cm (28 in) of a more or less one inch wide ribbon, a couble of nice big bead, some thick thread, and some regular thread



make a a bundle with the thick thread and tie them toegheter, then saw the two endings of the ribbon and tie the bundle to them

then slide the beads onto the ribbon...


and voila! you got yourself a pretty bookmarker...




I made this for my grandmas as a christmas gift...

Wow, this take on my old hair-ribbon-bookmark idea makes my bookmarks seem utterly pedestrian.  Absotively awesome!

Beautiful!  My mum is always reading (actually so are most of my family - what social animals we are!), this is a perfect present.  Especially as I'm skint - ha ha ha!  Handmade is always the best, and this marker looks so lovely, I'm onto it.  Right now.

It turned out so pretty, and it would be an awesome project for when you're creative in the middle of the night and only Wal-Mart is open, I bet you could get everything there Wink  Ah, the endless variations....

That's a gorgeous combination of bead and ribbon. 

One tip: when I've made these, I tie a second knot on the folded-over end of the ribbon AFTER threading on the beads.  In other words, fold your ribbon in half, tie a knot with the loose ends, thread the beads onto the fold end, then tie another little knot in that end.  This keeps the beads from sliding back off the ribbon when the bookmark is out of the book. 

Also, if you choose beads that are slightly tight on the ribbon, you can slide them back up tight against the bottom of the book after you loop it around the page you're marking, which helps keep the ribbon from falling out of the book.

I read a LOT, and I use TONS of bookmarks.  In fact, after I've been here long enough, I'd love to do a bookmark swap. (This is my first post - hi y'all!)

i saw a similar idea on marthastewart.com, where she used different sizes/colors/types of ribbon layered on top of one another, about like 8 or 10 inches long.  she stitched them on a machine, but i found that it looks nicer and works just as well if you use a fabric glue stick, or probably even a regular glue stick would work.  you could sew some little charms or buttons on the ends, too.  i think she made one that was pink ribbon with one pom pom on the bottom end and a little pom pom poodle on the top end.
