Comments: When I take the time to look INSIDE all the wonderful books I have in my library, I find all kinds of wonderful ideas.

When opening the book called "The Victorian Book of Ribbons and Roses", an Inspiring Collection of Delightful Projects and Pastimes from a Bygone Age by Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell, I came across a wonderful idea about making fabric bookmarkswithout having to spend lots of time actually doing them.

All someone needs for this project is to find some already made braid that appeals to her or him, have some fabric glue handy and be able to make a tassel with some thread that will go nicely with the colors of the selected braid. 

At home we are all avid book readers, so we can never have too many bookmarks. I have made 4 so far, two for my husband and I will keep two for myself. No doubt I will make others in the near future, as soon as I manage to find some interesting braids.

Here is a photo showing the 4 bookmarks that I made so far.
