Beaded Ribbon As Bookmarks

Make Some As Gifts

I saw these beads ribbon bookmarks in a big bookstore downtown and decided that I could make them myself and save about US$6.00. These are selling for US$7.90 each in the store.

Ribbon Bookmark with Beads

So after deducting the cost of the materials used, I guess I save about $6.00 making them myself. These beaded ribbons are great to insert into books when being given as gifts for birthday or at Christmas.

You can also use them as embellishments for your homemade cards. Do let your recipients know that they are not just receiving a card but a bookmark too.

Craft Supplies Needed

  • 4 small beads
  • 2 big beads
  • ribbon - 12" long
  • cellophane tape

How to Make It

  • On one side of the ribbon, wrap cellophane tape tightly to form a needle so beads could be threaded easily.
  • Tie a knot on the other side of the ribbon.
  • Using the cellophane wrapped side, thread 1 small bead followed by the big bead then the small bead again.
  • Push beads to the end of the ribbon against the knot.
  • Tie a knot to keep the beads on one end.
  • Tie a knot on the cellophane wrapped end about 3" away from end.
  • Thread another small bead followed by big bead and then a small bead again.
  • Remove the cellophane tape and tie a knot at the end to secure the beads.

Uses For These Beads Ribbon Bookmarks

Below is the card I made to go with the bookmark. Here I string the bookmark around the folded card as an embellishment. Do not make a dead knot. And be sure to inform your recipient that it can be used as a bookmark.
