Mother’s Day: Beaded Bookmarks

ribbon bead bookmarks

Every year at school they have a stall for the kids to buy gifts for Mother’s Day. The items are all made or donated by local families and businesses. A couple of years ago I wrapped soap in brown paper and pretty ribbon. This year I’m trying to get ahead of myself and I’ve started on some ribbon bookmarks.

They are very easy. I used 30cm or so of really narrow ribbon and a few beads. Knot one end to stop the beads sliding off, thread the beads and tie the other end. Then tie a couple more knots to keep the beads at each end.

Now I need your help: How will I present them for the stall? I’m thinking maybe wrapped around some little cards with slits to hold the ribbon in place. Perhaps with something cute printed on the card?

Any other ideas or suggestions?

    Those bookmarks looks so lovely!

    On another note, I agree with your idea to use cardboard in presenting it on the stall. Just make sure you ahng it up to make it look better.
