I want Her Bookmarks

When i first saw These Bookmarks from the lovely and creative Velvetstrawberries, I fell in love at first sight and thought to myself I want to try to make those! although my results aren't as gorgeous and as vintage-y as hers, i'm so happy that at least now i have cute bookmarks and no more of using whatever at hands when i'm reading such as the top bit of a tissue box or worst fold the corner edge of a book page i'm reading :)

Big thanks to Velvetstrawberries, for the tutorial and sharing on how to make the bookmarks, really appreciate it! i'm re-using bits and pieces of my jewelery that are already broken, i just bought the velvet ribbon and the silver clamps from ebay.

These are just for myself and i made their length longer for bigger books but I'm going to make the length shorter for smaller books to sell at the craft fayre. Will keep you posted once i've finished.

That's it from me, til next time....Have a wonderful day!


  1. Wow these are wonderful Susan! love the velvet and the keys and crowns, you have some beautiful broken jewellery!! :) have a great week.

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  2. Those are just the prettiest bookmarks! What a great way to give a new lease of life to broken jewellery. My favourite one would have to be the crown is just lovely. I am sure your bookmarks will do well at the craft fayre..those would make perfect stocking stuffers, for people to buy for their loved ones.

  3. Ooooh those are so pretty! I love bookmarks I keep buying them lol I should learn to make some. I love the rose and the crown. Great stuff :)

  4. Wow, I would have never thought of this idea before, such a lovely set of bookmarks xxx

  5. There was a picture posted on Tumblr quite some time ago that I favourited of bookmarks just like these! It's lovely to see that you've tried them and they work for you! Would love to make some as gifts for book loving friends this Christmas. And some for me too of course!

  6. These are so pretty, Susan! I love that the ribbon is velvet...such a soft touch. I know what you mean about grabbing anything at hand. Now I've taken to trimming cards that people have sent,and using those as bookmarks.

    I think these will sell very well at the fair. Most of all, enjoy making them.
