Dragonfly Charm Bookmark

Ribbon Charm Bookmarks are an easy DIY that makes for a great gift for any book lover in your life!


We are a family of readers. Adam, Rolf and I all like to end our day with a little reading in bed time. Harper has been learning her sight words and enjoys a bedtime story from Rolf most nights. When Rolf started taking a book to bed at the beginning of summer, I wanted to make book markers for him, so he wouldn't lose his place.

These are so easy and require no sewing! Which is awesome because I don't sew.

Supplies:

Wide Ribbon
Hot Glue Gun
Charms; I used dragonflies




Directions:


Cut a section of ribbon that is twice as long as the average book.


Fold the ribbon in half and liberally add hot glue.




Fold the ribbon over on to the hot glue and press.
At the end of the ribbon, insert a necklace clasp so that it just  barely hangs out of the ribbon.



Attach the charm to the jump ring.
Secure with hot glue.


These are so easy to make and they are pretty too.
Use a variety of charms and patterns of ribbon to make a variety.


This makes a fun DIY gift idea for tweens and teens who have a limited budget, but a little time and creativity.  These DIY dragonfly charm bookmarks would also make a great classroom gift idea to encourage reading over the winter holidays.


The addition of a simple charm to the ribbon makes these bookmarks feel really elegant and they look pretty too!
