Velvet Bookmark

I really love making gifts for friends, I truly feel that by making a gift for a friend, I can make it personalized and show I care a lot. I’m a gift-giving person by nature so I really love that feeling when I’ve given someone a gift that they love. This particular DIY today is in fact a gift I’m going to be giving to a friend…I’m not saying who (obviously don’t want to ruin the surprise…obviously hope she likes it), but it’s such a fantastic DIY that I just had to share it with all my lovelies! So incredibly easy and yet such an elegant gift – can’t go wrong!

What you need:

  • Thick velvet ribbon – about 13″ long
  • Flat ended ring
  • Pendant
  • Jump ring
  • Contact adhesive
  • Scissors

How to:

  1. Fold over a couple of cm on one end of  the ribbon.

  2. Using the contact adhesive, glue the end of the ribbon back on itself (this is the cheats version of sealing the end – saves you the sewing and works just as well!)

  3. Slip the flat ended ring onto the other end of the ribbon.

  4. Fold the other end of the ribbon over the ring and secure with contact adhesive.

  5. Using the jump ring, hook the pendant onto the round end of the ring.

  6. Leave to dry.

I’m still amazed how something so easy to make can look so great and make such a fantastic gift (fingers crossed). I feel like the velvet ribbon gives a somewhat vintage-inspired, Victorian feel to it and I just love that it’s a different and unexpected way of using pendants. Simply – love!

Happy Holidays!

    Everything composed was actually very logical. But, consider this, suppose you were
    to write a awesome headline? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a title
    to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Velvet Bookmark | All
    Things Indulgent is kinda plain. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to get viewers to click.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would make
    your website a little livelier.
