Beaded Bookmark Christmas Gift

These easy beaded bookmarks make great handmade Christmas gifts for your favorite bookworms. Look for supplies in the jewelry aisle at your local crafts store.

What You'll Need

  • Assorted beads
  • 2- or 3-inch-long headpins
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Ribbon
  • Toothpick
  • Strong adhesive, such as E6000
  • Chandelier earring finding
  • Jump ring
  • Charm

How to Make It

1. Place beads on headpins. Use pliers to make a loop at the ends of each headpin large enough to allow ribbon to pass through.

2. Trim ribbon strands to desired lengths. Insert one end into the loop at end of a beaded headpin, leaving 1/2 inch of ribbon. Fold over ribbon; secure with adhesive applied using a toothpick.

3. Thread remaining ribbon ends through openings on a chandelier finding. Fold ribbon over and glue in place.

4. Use pliers and a jump ring to connect a charm to the chandelier finding.
