4th of July Celebration * Little Book Markers





 Hello All,
Well the 4th of July is upon us and it is a Great time of  Celebration!  I have another project to share with you that you can use any time, with any kind of paper.  If you need a little something for a birthday or just want to share a cool book marker with someone here is one I think is just that.
In honor of our Beautiful United States of America and to say thank you to all the men and women who have fought and died for the freedoms we live under I wanted to share this U-tube video with John Wayne as the narrator. Listen and enjoy your holiday! Tutorial will follow....

BIG GOOF!
I hit something and it posted this blog entry waaayyy before I had finished editing it so here is the edited complete version.  Sorry about that....

THE LITTLE BOOK MARKER

Supplies:
*Favorite Paper
*Ribbon
*Circle hole punch (1/2 in.)
   to punch out circles
*Berry Beads
*Charms
*Head pins
*Jump rings
*Hole punch 1/8 inch
   for small holes in each paper.
* A book to put your new marker in!

Here is your chance to use some of your favorite papers.  
Choose the papers you would like to use and punch out a stack
 of about 20 for each book marker.




This paper with the little dresses is available on Etsy at: harmonicagoldfish
for $3.50 for the digital download.

The beads are available at:
$2.99 for 20 beads.




Put papers on the jump ring after punching them with the hole punch.




 Next before using your head pin in the berry bead make a closed loop on one end. Insert pin into the bead and make another closed loop. Attach the jump ring on the papers to one end and close the jump ring.

Add another jump ring to your charm and attach it to the other end of  the berry bead.
 It should look like this.

Cut your ribbon and fold in half.  Loop it through one of the jump rings to make a slip knot.  The ends will be loose, leaving you with two ribbons on the end. 

There you have it.  Simple as pie. 
People love getting these cute little markers!
Share yours with us!  We would love to see what you have made.

If you have any questions please email me and I will help you to the best of my ability.  
Thanks for looking....and remember....
Aspire to be Inspired!
Have a wonderful holiday and God bless!
