10 Simple Ideas for Casual Crafters


Fancy Bookmarks

The beauty of this crafty project is that it's easy, quick and inexpensive, and you can actually use the final product. Start by buying strips of velvet ribbon in varying widths -- choosing whatever colors and patterns you fancy. Cut the ribbon into strips of about 6 to 9 inches. Next, you're going to need some ribbon clamps, which will allow you to attach trinkets to the ends of the bookmark. You can get them at craft stores for pretty cheap. Attach the clamps on both ends of the ribbon and add assorted trinkets and charms to decorate. You can find your own or purchase them from a craft store, along with the jump rings to attach them. Voila, you just made some fancy bookmarks.
