ABC Friday

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!

  1. Awesome. Loved this tutorial. I need to work on some tags as well, so this was just in time.


Thank you for visiting the TSG Blog, happy stamping!
