DIY TASSEL BOOKMARKS

Happy hump day!  Today I’ll be sharing with you this super easy and cute DIY tutorial for tassel bookmarks!  I came across this idea a few weeks ago but I’m just now getting to it…

I love a bookmark that does not slide. In the past, I’ve had the laminated ones only to find that they eventually get pushed inside the pages and it takes a bit to find your place again because they are so thin.  I also don’t want something too bulky that will warp the pages so a paperclip seemed ideal for my bookmark needs but there was just one thing missing.  

As a paper clip is helpful to bookmark pages, sometimes it’s nice to have something to grab to quickly flip to that page and also unless you are using colored paper clips, you may not know exactly where that certain recipe is or that important note that you need to remember.  That’s why these colorful tassel paper clips are perfect to keep you organized and also add some fun flair to your reading.

Ok so let’s get started!  First things first, you will need supplies:

BOOKMARK TASSELS

| 1. | Gold Paper Clips | 2. | Cross Stitch Thread | 3. | Scissors

 

Take sleeves off of the thread you plan to use.  The thread should already be looped for you.  Take one end of the looped thread and feed it through the paper clip.  

SUPPLIES

Cut the opposite end of the loop in the center.  Then cut a small piece of thread for wrapping the tassel.

TASSEL DIY

Tie the top of thread near the base of the paper clip and wrap, tie last bit of thread into a knot and cut loose ends.

TASSELS

Trim to the desired length you would like your tassel to be.  

TASSELS

That’s it!  This is probably one of the easiest little crafts you could possibly do while watching your favorite Netflix show.  These would be a great little gift to give your office buddies or book club mates and it’s super cheap to make!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial!  If you have tried this craft, please let me know how it turned out!  I’d love to hear all about it in the comments below.

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

  • Currently wishing I could smudge away this cold... if only it worked like that! 
Instead, I’ll be sipping hot tea and popping Vitamin C, but if you’re looking for a good read on “smudging” check out my latest blog post (link in bio) for some enlightenment on the subject.

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!
