Last Christmas, along with quilts, I made these super cute Bookmarks (book jewelry) and gave them to my loved ones.
I made about 25 of them which all looked different, and these 4 are the only ones I have left. My inspiration for these beauties came from Velvet Strawberries Bookmark Baubles.
I made them from different colors of velvet ribbon from FabricLand, and pendents, clasps and wire all purchased from Michael’s Craft Store.
One thing I would have changed was that the clasps were a bit smaller then the ribbon and I would have liked it if they were the same size. But… I couldn’t find a perfect match, so they are a little less polished then I would have liked.
Making book jewelry is a very inexpensive quick gift idea for the avid reader. I even made ones for the men readers in my life. I used navy blue ribbon and manly pendents like leaves or letters of their initials.
I hope you feel inspired to make your own book jewelry!
Have fun creating!
