DIY Bookmarks

Do you have any old books that fall apart and that no one ever read? Make bookmarks out of them! I used a scalpel to cut off the spine and a pair of scissors to straighten it afterwards. I made a hole using a thick needle and then I attached a hemp string.

  4. I have seen a lot of book spine bookmarks, but I think I like yours best. I would like to feature these on my blog Tutorials and Patterns with your permission. I would include your photo, a brief description and then link back to you. You can see how I’ve done it with others. I look forward to hearing back from you. Marti
