There is nothing I love more than sitting outside on a sunny day and reading my favorite books. Just the other day I started to read the Harry potter series again and yes I’m in Slytherin. Just as much as I love reading I also love to show my Harry Potter obsession. This time I decided to create a bookmark that compliments the Harry Potter series using the My Friendship Bracelet Maker.
My Friendship Bracelet Bookmark
Dylan G. Smith for Choose Friendship Co.
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
My Friendship Bracelet Maker
Markers, crayons, or color pencils
Laminator or clear packing tape
Begin making your bracelet of choice using My Friendship Bracelet Maker, making sure to leave at least an inch long loop at the start of the bracelet.
Once your bracelet, or tassel, is as long as you would like it to be, tie a knot where your pattern stops and cut the remaining thread
Cut a rectangle, or any other fun shape out of paper.
Using your markers, crayons, or color pencils, decorate the paper- this will be your bookmark!
Once you are finished decorating the bookmark, laminate the paper or carefully cover both sides with clear packing tape. Make sure you don’t have any bubbles!
After your bookmark is laminated, punch a hole about ¼” from the top.
Take the beginning loop of your tassel and put it through the hole you punched in the bookmark.
Put the end of your tassel through the beginning loop to secure it on your bookmark.
Skill Level: Beginner/intermediate depending on pattern
