I screwed up. In the midst of all of my responsibilities over the years, I neglected the important relationship I had with books and stopped reading. Usually my excuse was that I didn't have time. But, if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have rekindled my obsession with books and am happily invested in the joy of reading books.
This, of course, presented a happy little problem with my actual books (yes, you can own actual tangible books). I don't just read one book - I read several which means I need bookmarks.I decided to amp my reading game this weekend and made a few bookmarks.
They are ridiculously easy to make and it took me less than five minutes to make them. Plus, they would be great presents for the book-a-holics in your life.
For this DIY, you will need:
- Wire (It's preferable to opt for a thicker wire so your bookmark is sturdy)
- Pliers/Wire Cutters
- Beading Wire (optional)
- Crimp bead (optional)
- Beads and charms (optional)
- Embroidery thread (optional)
You may have noticed most of the supplies are listed are optional. This is because there are so many options! You can opt to attach a tassel or charm to your bookmark - or just make a simple one with wire!
