Hey Pretty Girls,

Do you want to make your own Pretty Bookmark? I know all you girls love to read and why not make a cute bookmark to make your book look so much cuter! It is sooo easy!

What youll need:
Strips of ribbon They can be any color and texture you want, so have fun with it and be creative! You can purchase a yard of ribbon for about $1.59 from here.
Ribbon clamps these need to be the same width as your ribbon strips. You can purchase a pack of 10 for $1.50 here.
Flat-nose jewelry pliers if you have a pair of household pliers just lying around, these will work perfectly too!
Jump Rings These are what will keep your jewelry attached to the ribbon. You can purchase a pack of 100 for roughly $1.00 from here.
Jewelry pieces of your choice these can be necklace charms, rings, or even chandelier earrings.

1.Start out by cutting a strip of ribbon. If you have a specific book in mind that youd like to use, lay the ribbon across it and add about an extra inch. If not, I found that a good practical length is between nine and eleven inches.
2.With the flat-nosed pliers, secure a clamp to each end of the ribbon. This prevents the ribbon from fraying and lets you enjoy it even longer!
3.On one end of the newly clamped ribbon, hook a jump ring to the clamp.
4.And for the finishing touch, add your jewelry of choice to the jump ring for a one of a kind bookmark!

Are you pretty girls going to do this?
