a beautiful bookmark

you will need:
embroidery thread

first cut a length of embroidery thread a couple of inches longer than the book you'll use it in. i like to run the whole length of it over a gluestick to make it a little stronger.

then i glue the ends & twist them to a point with just a tiny bit of glue.

thread the beads on one end before you tie any knots. my beads were a pink pearl & rose quartz. let them run into the middle of the thread & tie a knot as close to the end as you like.

then push the beads back close to the knot & tie a knot at the other side of them, to keep them in place.

& then you can enjoy your lovely creation!!!
