Five-Second DIY Bookmark
October 17, 2013 § 4 Comments
What if I told you you can make a bookmark in five seconds flat? The project was born when I was about to throw a product info tag into the recycling: I thought the tag was a bit too neat just to throw away, never to be seen again.
This bookmark “project” is hardly worth the name, but there is it nevertheless. 🙂 It won’t cost you a thing if you’re in the habit of saving your scrap materials for crafting. If not, you might be able to scavenge a bit of string and a corner of cardboard. Here we go!
– Product information tag from a piece of clothing, toy, purse, etc., as long as you like the look and the size is suitable for a bookmark. The tag already has a hole, so you save yourself the trouble of punching one. (Of course you can also use a piece of pretty cardboard or the like and a hole punch. This is just the super-duper fast way.)
– A length of thin ribbon or thick yarn, approx. 5-6 inches (15 cm) long
Fold ribbon in two, loop through the hole on the tag, insert ends of ribbon through the loop, pull to tighten. Enjoy!
In fact, it took waaaay longer to write this down than to make my bookmark. 🙂
