Easy Handmade Bookmark

I made this cute little foxy bookmark a little while ago now for a fellow blogger as part of a swap and I think he's so cute !

I wanted to share with you how easy it was and you could do this with any felt design you like!

What a cute idea for valentines too - you could find a cute little felt heart, add their initials - the opportunities are endless.

So all you'll need is your little felt character or shape, some ribbon, a wooden lolly stick and some glue ! I used super glue - but be super careful with it - I recently ended up with it ALL over my hand, not fun !! (I have some tips on removing it if anyone needs it!)

So all you need to do it cut the first piece of ribbon to about 30cm (depending on the size of your book) and glue the felt foxy to the bottom of the ribbon on the front (if the design is only on the front).

Then on the other end - glue the lolly stick in place and with another piece of ribbon - cover the other side if you wish, round off the edges :)

The lolly stick acts as a weight to keep it within the pages but you could just use cardboard or any small piece of wood or plastic !

And voila, there you have it - a super easy and cute individual bookmark !! Enjoy x






P.S I got the cute little foxys on ebay x
