Breast Cancer Awareness Month Bookmark

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month here is a bookmark I made and gave to my MIL whom has survived Breast Cancer for about 6 years now. 

Close Up

Here is how to make it:

12 inches of ribbon (to fit double in a book or the length of your book,  plus 3 inches.
1-Head pin
1-Eye pin
Split rings or jump rings
Beads and charms of your choice
Strong fabric glue or glue gun or glue of choice

Pull ribbon through jump rings, (I used 8-10mm jump rings).  Fold ribbon over about 1/4" inch to hide raw edges then fold over again and glue in place (about 1" or 1 1/2") whatever looks and feels right.  Add beads and charm to head pins and eye pins in desired pattern.  Form a loop at the top of the head or eye pin.  Add to jump ring on ribbon.  Repeat on other end of ribbon.  Done!

Feel free to ask any questions if anything is not clear.  Enjoy!
