We had a few scraps of burlap and wanted to make this easy bookmark for book lovers! (This would be a great project for Father’s Day!) Materials Burlap Yarn Ribbon Tape (we used Washi tape) Scissors (Sorry! These seemed to have migrated to another area during the photo!) Directions Cut your burlap into sizes a little bigger than you want your bookmarks. We just used scraps that we had from other projects. Tape the edges. We found that it was helpful to unwind the tape, lay it sticky side up and then to lay your burlap edge onto the tape half way, folding it over to make a finished edge. Do two of the opposite sides and then trim any excess pieces. Then do the other two sides. Trimming off any excess pieces. This “frame” will prevent any fraying of the edges. Sew any designs that you may like- lines, designs or create shapes out of the negative space with the burlap. Make a loop of ribbon over top of the end where you would like to put your tassel for your bookmark (See below). Bring the two ends through a space/hole in the burlap from the back going through the loop in the front. We showed you with another style of bookmark that we made below as it is a bit easier to see the process with this type.) Give your bookmark to a book lover (Which may mean keeping it for yourself!) Purpose Encouraging reading Developing fine motor skills (sewing, cutting etc.) Safety Notes Exercise care and use needles and scissors with adult supervision. Yarn can be a strangulation hazard, therefore it is important to use it for it’s intended purpose. Please like & share: Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
