DIY ribbon bookmarks materials needed

How you make this project:

Cut the ribbon into 18 inch strips. (This is for an average sized book. If you need a bookmark for a large book, you may want to measure around the book first and add length to the ribbon.)

Fold one end of the ribbon over 1/4 inch. Fold it over another 1/4 inch and stitch across. You can do this by hand, or use a sewing machine. I used a zig zag stitch on my machine for a special touch.

Repeat for the other end of ribbon, adding the elastic hair band before you start folding to attach it to the ribbon.

To use, just wrap your ribbon bookmark around your book and pull the elastic up and around the button to secure it into place. You’ll never lose your place in a book again with one of these ribbon bookmarks!
