Supplies: DIY Ribbon & Rhinestone Bookmark
If you are more of a visual learner, we’ve created a short video tutorial . . .
DIY Ribbon Bookmark: Attach Ribbon Clasp
First place the clasp in the pliers, then place the ribbon in between the teeth of the clasp. Once it is centered and aligned in the clasp, crimp the clasp with the pliers. Turn to the other side and crimp as well.
DIY Ribbon Bookmark: Attach the Totally Dazzled Brooch
Attach the Totally Dazzled Brooch with jump rings.
To open the jump rings you will need two pair of pliers. Grip the jump ring with both of the pliers and twist to open the ring. It is best to twist open and not pull the jump ring apart, otherwise it is difficult to get it to close securely.
Insert the jump ring through the loop on the ribbon clasp.
Next, close the jump ring by twisting the jump ring until it is closed.
We ordered the 10 piece mixed pack of Totally Dazzled rhinestone accessories. This package comes with varying backs. Some are flat backs others have pin backs. The brooch we used for this ribbon bookmark had a pin back. Therefore we used the pliers to pull it off.
Finally we attached the rhinestone brooch with a jump ring. For this DIY ribbon bookmark we used 3 jump rings.
We had so much fun making these easy DIY ribbon and rhinestone bookmarks. It was fun to play with different colors of ribbon to create simple and chic Mother’s Day gifts. Not only are these bookmarks simple to make, but also the perfect last minute gift idea.
Benefits of Being Creative . . .
We are aware that there are many who are struggling at this time with health concerns as well as anxiety over this virus that is sweeping across the world. We hope that through our posts each week that we are encouraging you to create.
Creativity reduces anxiety, depression, and stress…
Research has suggested that being creative — is actually useful for our mental and physical well-being.
Utilizing that creative energy can improve our overall health. It might sound too good to be true, but simply engaging in creative activties improves brain function, mental health, and physical health.
Have you ever been working on a project and completely lost all sense of self and time? That’s flow. It reduces anxiety, boosts your mood, and even slows your heart rate.
Repetitive creative motions like knitting, drawing, or writing help activate flow, and are all tasks that create a result.
And when you succeed at creating a result, no matter what it is, your brain is flooded with dopamine.
With this in mind, we hope you find some time to just create. Do it for you and your well-being.
Creating with these beautiful rhinestone accessories was so much fun. Not only did we make several of these beautiful ribbon bookmarks, but we embellished a framed FREE printable that is perfect for Mother’s Day. We used a Totally Dazzled slide to embellish the frame. It made a simple frame so chic.
