Part of a present James & I gave to his Grandmother were two bookmarks. I made a thicker, more fun looking book mark, for her to use with any book. Then I strung up a more dainty looking bookmark using seed beads and a cross charm on one end for her to use with her Bible.
She seemed to love these as well, and I have been having a blast making more bookmarks to gift away, as well as for James and myself.
These homemade bookmarks are so easy and there is really no end to possibilities, because so many color schemes can be used, and different beads and charms also!
To make each bookmark, I just collect a string (elastic, yarn, etc) and some beads. I also pick out a charm or two for the ends. I string on the beads. and TAH-DAH! Yes, it really is that easy!
