diy bookmarks

a few weeks ago i made some book marks to give to all of the lovely customers that buy things from the brandeye etsy shop. they were really fun to make and super easy.

-card stock or any heavy weight paper
-vintage ribbon or lace
-scissors or paper cutter
-sewing machine or needle and thread

-cut the card stock to the desired length and width. mine are about 5" x 2".

-cut the ribbon or lace to the size of the length of the bookmark

-with your sewing machine or a needle and thread, sew the ribbon onto the paper. i made mine all vertical, but use your imagination and place it anywhere you'd like. it'd also look good with the ribbon or lace layered with a few pieces.

-as an option you can use a hole punch to punch a hole at the top and put some ribbon around it.

and remember this about lace, "it's like pretty underwear."
