Bookmark tutorial

Creative itch today!

~Let's make some bookmarks with wool felt, lace, rhinestones 
and what ever you want to add.~

!!Today I was browsing some websites and found some awesome 
bookmarks, and it gave me the inspiration to make my own bookmarks with wool felt.!!
1. Using just felt , lace , ribbon,  thick construction paper, glue, scissors plus a string of any kind for the small hole to hold the bookmark, paper hole puncher for the hole.
I will use my good wool felt to make one, you can make them if you have regular felt it's the same thing. 

2. Use any color felt to make your bookmark, very cheap and easy to use.

3. Here are the things you will need, The ribbons and lace construction paper, puncher, scissors, glue.

4. You can use the trimer scissors if you rather.

5. Here the bookmark is ready, I used the glue gun, to glue the felt and the ribbons. Don't use too much glue only a small amount on each ribbon.. To make the hole on the bookmark use your puncher. If you don't have one they are very cheap at Michaels.

6. Glue gun use it carefully please.

7.Now trim the left pieces of ribbons on the sides.

8. After all is trimed out, you need to tie-up your ribbon in the hole.

9. I added some rhinestones stickers on the ribbon pieces.

10. Here you can see the finish of the bookmarks ready to be used.

Lovely idea, get creative with me.
