How to Make a Bookmark

My daughter came up with this easy craft. Here’s how:

Take a few thin ribbons, beads, sequins, and hairpins (bobby pins).

Thread the ribbon half way through the eye of the bobby pin.

Slide beads or sequins either onto the ribbon on the bobby pin or both.

Tie a knot to hold the ribbon in place on the bobby pin.

Slide the pin onto your page to hold your spot in your book.

Voila! Done!

This craft makes a great birthday party activity as well as a great homemade gift idea.
