Felt Ribbon Bookmark

Felt Ribbon Bookmark; makes a great gift to give to a very special someone.
Gabrielle’s dance recital was this weekend.  Sébastien and I wanted to get her something special for the occasion.  Gabrielle LOVES books so we decided to pick her up a little set of chapter books.
I was just about to wrap the books when I realized it was missing something… something personalized.
This is what I created to accompany the books.

A cute bookmark made with felt, ribbon and buttons.
What do you think?
Would you like to make one too?
Supplies:
– Felt
- Ribbon
– Embroidery Thread
– Buttons
- Paper
– Scissors
– Needle
– Glue gun
Step #1 (optional):
Take out the book you are offering as a gift and take out supplies that compliment the colors of the book’s cover.

 

 

Step #2:
Take out your piece of paper.  Cut out a large and small circle.

 

Step #3:
Place the large circle on one of your pieces of felt. Cut around the paper circle to create a felt circle.

 

Step #4:
Once you have your large circle, thread some embroidery thread around it. (This is for decoration)

 

Step #5:
Place your small paper circle on a different piece of felt and cut out the circle.

 

Step #6:
Sew the little felt circle onto the large felt circle with some embroidery thread.

 

 
Step #7:
Cut the ribbon the length you want it and place it underneath your large felt circle.  Place a button on the top of your little circle and sew the button and ribbon onto the felt circles.

 

Step #8:
Repeat all of the above steps to create the other end of your bookmark.

 

Step #9:
Cut two squares pieces of felt. (Make sure they are bigger than your big circle)

 

Step #10:
Use your glue gun to glue the felt circles onto the square pieces of felt.

 

Step #11:
Cut around the large circle. (Your square felt will turn into a matching circle)

 

Step #12:
Enjoy the beautiful bookmark! :)

  1. I almost forgot how cute bookmarks can be since we are so used to reading books on our iPad. This would fun for the boys to use in their books. I can see them getting really excited about marking pages :o) -Sarah @ Repeat Crafter Me

  2. I love to read (usually several books at the same time!) and there never seems to be enough bookmarks! I love your bookmarks and will be busy making them to personalize the books I give to others – and some for myself, too. Thank you for sharing.
