Kim here! Welcome to Anything But a Card Friday!
Today I am showing you a bookmark I made using the Jungle Out There stamp set and specifically, how I tie the ribbon on the bookmarks.
I die cut the bookmark using the PTI bookmark die and added DSP from the Doodlebug Designs Hello Spring 6x6 paper pad. I colored that silly elephant with copics. The sentiment was printed from my computer. For the ribbon, I am using a 7" piece of 5/8" celery satin grosgrain double band ribbon.
With the ribbon folded in half, pull the ribbon through from the back.
Thread a piece twine through the loop you've created.
Fold the loop up and flip the bookmark over. Tie a knot with the twine and cut excess twine.
Flip the bookmark back over, trim the tails of the ribbon and pull them apart slightly.
Here's the finished product:
If you do craft fairs, these bookmarks are great sellers! If you're giving the gift of a book, adding a handmade bookmark is a nice touch, too!
