Here is part 2 of the super-easy ribbon bookmark project! This one includes Twinkle Type – one of my most favorite embellishments – it's sparkly – need I say more?!
Twinkle Type letters
Step 1 :: Select a ribbon of your choice. Again, almost any type of ribbon will work as long as it's flat. Today I used a velvet ribbon (love the texture!) and a two-toned ribbon – fun!
:: Measure desired length and cut. If you read mostly paper backs cut
your ribbon shorter than if you lean towards hardcovers. When cutting
the tail, fold the end of the ribbon in half lengthwise and holding the
scissors at an angle with scissor tips facing opposite the end of the
ribbon – snip! This creates the lovely "v" end giving your tail a
:: Using the other end of the ribbon, determine where you want to place the piece of twinkle type on
the ribbon. Now, put a few small dots of fabric glue on the back of your letter and press on to ribbon to adhere. Note: don't put too much glue on the back of the letter because when you press it on to the ribbon it will come gushing out – I speak from experience!! Allow to dry.
Voila! Remember, you could add a book or a magazine (if you make your tail long enough) with a year-long subscription to make this a perfectly pretty present!
Enjoy your holiday crafting!
