Hi again Ribbon Retreat readers. I’m thrilled to share a “Ribbon-rific” project with all of you today, perfect for St. Patty’s Day, but it could also be customized for any time of the year. With the beautiful selection of different ribbons from The Ribbon Retreat, you’re sure to find a couple of styles, patterns, and colors that you’ll adore.
To make each bookmark, I measured out about 10 inches of the ribbons I’d use. Since I knew I wanted to layer a couple on top of one another on each bookmark, I just cut lots of pieces and began to match them up.
The assembly process is a piece of cake. Simply tie off one end and trim either at an angle or two angles. Make sure to burn the edges with a lighter or other heat tool to avoid fraying.
Next, you’ll need to hot glue the ribbons to each other using a small strip of glue. Be careful as you press the ribbons together, hot glue is HOT people! I also made sure to use a lighter on the other end of the bookmark to avoid that pesky fraying that can occur.
Once each ribbon was set, I arranged some pretty green and hot pink feathers at the bottom and topped them off with some pretty beads.
They are perfect for all the many books I seem to start at once but can never find the time to actually get around to reading!
Are you a book lover? I love to read, but like Meredith, don’t have a ton of time to finish the books that I start. However, with adorable and festive bookmarks like these, I may get a little more excited about opening that book again and again to admire my little bookmark beauties and finish what I started! 🙂
Thank you Meredith for this fun and festive project! I love the double ribbon look, the lucky St. Patty’s Day ribbon, and I love the knotted ribbon ends.
