It’s maybe a little old fashion, but I like reading in books…a kindle is ok but i prefer paper books. I have the bad habit to fold the page corner as book mark. It’s ok when is a pocket book, but I don’t like to do it when it’s an original edition or if it is a borrowed book. So instead of spending time looking for a small paper piece to use as a book mark, let’s just make some pretty ones. It’s the perfect project to use your yarn scraps.

You will need different yarn colors, cardboard, a fork and scissors.

Let’s start by making the tassel, cut a small square of cardboard (3 x 3 inches) and wrap some yarn around.

Cut a 20 inches piece of yarn and make a knot on the top to hold all the yarns together and cut the bottom part. Don’t trim the yarn, you will use it to attach the pompons and the tassel together.

The easy and fast way to make small pompons in using a fork. So just wrap the yarn around the fork tines. You can use one color or several to make fun colored pompons.

Give your pompon a “haircut” to have a nice round shape. Make a second pompon the same way.

Now that both pompons and the tassel are ready, you just have to attach them to each other to complete the book mark. Use the tassel long yarn to fix one pompon on top of the tassel with a knot.
