What you need

Printed ribbon
4 x Beads


This bead and ribbon bookmark is so simply to make that it is the perfect craft for mass production, such as making them to sell for fundraising crafts or even making them to give away to friends and family for christmas presents.

Take your length of ribbon and cut it to 35cm’s.
Tie a knot about 5 cm’s in from the end. Then thread your beads onto the ribbon. Tie another knot at the end of the beads to stop them from falling off as shown in the picture.

For a great christmas gift, use decorative christmas ribbon and pop them into a little handmade box or a small gift bag.

  2. Easy. Perfect craft for youth/cub scout group. We popped them into small silver gauze gift bags and sold them at our christmas fair.

  3. These are [erfect for Mother’s Day gifts! I’m going to supply my afterschool group with different shaped beads (flowers, letters, etc) to allow for individual personalized gifts.

  10. the project is a great idea. made one for all my friends.

  11. this is an okay craft. i think what would make it even better is if you have the costumer customize a saying and you design a laminated paper piece with that on it. you could attach that under the beads, to the ribbon.

  12. I love this ideal!!!
