Quick Project Thursday #15

Each Thursday I share a quick project that has what I think to be a good return on your time.
This week I am showing you vintage French embroidered ribbon made into beautiful bookmarks.
I have never been one to "dog ear" a page in a magazine or book, wanting to keep it like new, and although I generally use anything I can find to mark my spot, these are a much more beautiful way to accomplish that.....
And isn't it the small things done right in life that make it wonderful.
To create your own bookmarks, use any beautiful ribbon of your choice, jewelry findings, and quick ribbon end clips (I buy my at Joanns in the jewelry department)
Simply cut the ribbon to the desired length.
Fold over each end approximately 1/4" and iron flat.
Clip a ribbon fastener to each end and secure with pliers.
Embellish the bottom end with jewelry findings, beads, and charms.
Tie a sweet 1/2" silk ribbon to the top fastener.
AND, you're done.





These were all made for the upcoming Trade Days on May 15th.
It is a low price point for those people wanting to buy something,
But not spend a lot of money....and the ribbons are gorgeous!


Thank you for stopping by today.
If you ever have anything you would like to share with others,
Just grab my button and let me know......
Barbara Jean at Treasures from the Heart did, so go check her out!

I'd love to have you and it's always fun to share!

You know I always like to see what you've got for QP Thursdays, though, and I hope to have something to share next week!.. Now I'll have to see if I have some of those ribbon fasteners..
