journals I made to give as gifts, but these were really only secondary to the vintage jewelry bookmarks I had already made. The idea came from CountryLiving (their picture below), and when I finished the bookmarks I decided I needed something to put them IN to make sure people would know what in the world they were! You never know, right?CL link to view sources for materials. Then follow along with my tutorial below:
I began with 10" pieces of crushed velvet ribbon but any type of ribbon, or even lace, will do.
But here are a few shots of the bookmarks I made with beading materials from my local Michael's store (on sale after Christmas by the way). I think they are also very pretty and quite vintage-looking. They just aren't quite as special as the "real thing".
