Easy Beginnings - How to Make Your First Beaded Bookmark



So you want to make a beaded bookmark, do you? I guess you're tired of looking at the same old boring flimsy paper bookmarks. I can't say that I blame you. Even if you don't want a beaded bookmark for yourself, they make excellent gifts for co-workers, friends, and family. There are literally hundreds of pretty beads available that you could use. The hard part?

Finding the ones you want, since there's so many to choose! Whether you want to go to a local merchant, or shop online, that's entirely up to you. However, I'd like to offer a small tip of advice, if I may. You're bound to get "more bang for your buck," so to speak, if you shop online. There are many wholesale dealers who will give you your money's worth, and then some, if you shop in bulk. It's better than paying an arm and a leg at some fancy home interior decorator store, isn't it? I thought so!

Today, I'm going to break down what supplies you'll need, as well as give you the proper step-by-step instructions on how to create your first beaded bookmark. Are you ready? Let's go!

SUPPLIES NEEDED

- Beads - String - Scissors

STEPS

Step One: Using your scissors, cut your cord to the length you desire. Measure your book, and add an additional 3-5 inches.

Step Two: First, tie a knot in the end of your string. One by one, start to add your beads, according to the design or style you have chosen. After you have the beads on, make another knot on top of the beads in order to keep them in place. Actually, you can add as many strings as you would like to. It's entirely up to you. When you have all the strings you want, make sure to make another knot one-and-a-half inches from the top of your beaded bookmark.

Step Three: From there on, if you would like to, you can add another bead or two. There's really no right or wrong way to do this. There's no such thing as too little or too much beads. Where ever your imagination takes you, do it! Whether that means adding glitter, ribbon, or even macaroni shells, that's fine too. There's no such thing as right or wrong when it comes to beaded bookmarks. The sky's the limit!

If you've gotten this far, then guess what? You've just created your first beaded bookmark! With more practice, you can create even more fun beaded jewelry.
