A book marker is probably the first craft I ever made. In Colombia they make you do book markers for father's day, and my Dad actually kept a book marker I made for a long time. He may still have it.I personally think a book marker is very useful. I always destroy my books because I bend the edge of the pages. So, since my dad's birthday is coming up. I thought I could experiment a little making a DIY of this before doing the final one for him. This is what you need:
1. A small piece of faux leather
4. Super Glue
5. Hole Puncher
6. Marker for deco
7. Suede Lace
8. Embroidery Thread
This will take you about 15 minutes to make. It is very easy! Cut the cardboard to the size of book marker you want, then glue it to the faux leather. Cut the excess, let the glue dry for 2 minutes while pressing cardboard on the leather to make sure it's is properly glued. Punch a corner of the book marker with the hole puncher. Then cut 5 to 6 strips of the suede lace to the length desire to make a fringe. Then secure suede lace with the embroidery thread making a knot and then wrapping the thread around it about 5 times, make a knot again and cut the excess. Finish up your book marker with the design you want using the marker. I usually add a little note on the back of it to make it more personal.
