DIY Ribbon Bookmarks

What’s Needed

What's Needed


Measure the height of child’s favorite book series. Double that measurement and add an extra inch for seam allowance and to wrap over the pages. Cut a piece of ribbon to that length.

Thread the needle with embroidery thread and tie a knot at the end.

In Process 1

Select a hair band, and slide the end of the ribbon through it and fold it over.

In Process 2

Take the threaded needle and sew 2-3 tiny stitches so the hair band is secure in the loop.

In Process 3

At the other end of the ribbon, sew the button on securely.

In Process 4

Now grab the book you are reading, open to the page you’re on, and wrap the ribbon around it so the button and hair band is on the cover. Just loop the hair band around the button and your page is marked until you start reading again!

I foresee this as being a spring break or summer vacation project. Both my 8 year old daughter and 11 year old son would enjoy making these.

Oh that's a really great idea! I can see using that instead of rubber bands to hold boxes together too!
