Retired - Don't Bother Me, I'm Reading! Bookmark

PROJECT C1008
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
Put up the Do Not Disturb sign and hide away with a good book - and this cute, sassy ribbon bookmark. It will hold your place in style when life interrupts your reading time.
Instructions
  1. To begin, cut a 12" length of celery green grosgrain ribbon for your bookmark.
  2. Use a pair of chain nose pliers to crimp a 3/8" ribbon crimp onto one end of the ribbon. Repeat on the other end of the ribbon.
  3. Thread a 4mm crystal clear Czech fire polish round bead, a rhodium plated classic bead aligner, a black Murano style glass lampwork bead with white dots, another bead aligner, and another fire polish bead onto a 2", 22 gauge silver plated head pin.
  4. Create a wrapped wire loop after the last fire polish bead.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4.
  6. Use a 4mm, 21 gauge silver plated jump ring to hang one beaded piece from one of the ribbon crimps. Repeat with the other beaded piece on the other end of the ribbon.
  7. Enjoy your book!
