Jungle Out There Bookmark


If you are here for the iSpy Sketches Challenge, click HERE!


Today I am showing you a bookmark I made using the Jungle Out There stamp set and specifically, how I tie the ribbon on the bookmarks.  

I die cut the bookmark using the PTI bookmark die and added DSP  from the Doodlebug Designs Hello Spring 6x6 paper pad.  I colored that silly elephant with copics.  The sentiment was printed from my computer.  For the ribbon, I am using a 7" piece of 5/8" celery satin grosgrain double band ribbon.


With the ribbon folded in half, pull the ribbon through from the back.


Thread a piece twine through the loop you've created.


Fold the loop up and flip the bookmark over.  Tie a knot with the twine and cut excess twine.


Flip the bookmark back over, trim the tails of the ribbon and pull them apart slightly.


Here's the finished product:


If you do craft fairs, these bookmarks are great sellers!  If you're giving the gift of a book, adding a handmade bookmark is a nice touch, too!
