I'm late this morning..

I have some of my girls with their families here,for a couple of days..so I am kind of slow today.
With my oldest granddaughter, I was showing her a fun gift to make for friends..
A beautiful bookmark, very simple and one you can do as fancy as you want.
Take a piece of ribbon, about 12" long..on each end put on some fancy beads, maybe three or more depending on the bead, tie knots before the beads and after. You can decorate any way you want.
Hang a few charms from the ends..I used ribbon that was 1/4" wide..but really do your own thing.
Use your creativity...Have fun and if you are like me, love to teach the grandchildren a way to have fun by using their gifts...

Till next time, keep looking up..

That sounds like fun! I'm going to give that a try...I have tons of scrap ribbon that would be perfect!

That's a great idea for a bookmark! I hope you don't mind if I "borrow" your idea to do with my daughter :)

And thanks for visiting my blog!
