If you are making one or two, you likely have the supplies already. Since the magnetic bookmarks uses such a small amount from each, it can be easily done in a party setting. The slower crafters can make one; the faster crafters can make ten. Lay out a variety of ribbons (look among your scraps) and give a selection of a few duct tapes to choose from.

How to make fringed magnetic bookmarks: 

 

1. Start by unraveling the end of your ribbon to your desired length. You may need help finding the cross thread. If you can’t find it, just cut off the very edge of your ribbon (vertically). You’ll see it come apart. Do this only for the length that you want unraveled.

2. If you haven’t yet, cut your ribbon to size. I made mine about five inches long.

4. Connect the two pieces with a piece of duct tape that goes around the ribbon, right above the fringe. Your shorter ribbon should come halfway up the width of the tape, so that it sticks nicely. This is also what stops your ribbon from unraveling more.Make your own DIY magnetic bookmarks with a fun fringe!
