My MO friend, Jackie, started making these wonderful bookmarks out of ribbons and jewelry pieces. (those are hers above). After she sent me one, I decided to try it.
I've never gotten into jewelry-making due to lack of space. But I just bought some pliers and used some homemade earrings that I never wear. I did buy the jewelry clamps to put on the ends. Laura Lee will get these 2. Fun gift idea and something to do with all the extra ribbon we always end up with! I like the idea of giving one to anyone who loans me a book!
|made a little batch in about 30 minutes|
|bought small baggies in which to give them ---- as Jackie did|
|the creative juices are flowing!|
