How to make a bookmark out of string
How to Make Bookmarks With Beads & String | Our PastimesMake a handwoven bookmark simply and easily while learning the basic concepts of weaving on a cardboard loom. The bookmark makes a wonderful gift; or, maybe use it as a rug in a dollhouse or as a saddle blanket for a small toy horse. Make the loom in different sizes and sew the resulting fabric into coin purses, coasters, hot pads—whatever you can imagine! Looms can be as simple as a piece of notched cardboard to something as complex as the big, fast, mechanical, computer-driven looms in cloth factories. For this project, we will use a simple notched cardboard loom.

DIY Woven Bookmarks (For Beginners)
It damages books to fold down the corner to mark your page, and paper bookmarks are so easy to lose. You can make a bookmark out of string and beads that is both attractive and less likely to be misplaced. Sometimes called book thongs, bead and string bookmarks are an easy project to do with children or a great gift for the book lover in your life. Gather your materials. You can use a single strand of yarn, embroidery floss or other thicker strings.
One of the best ways to practice the art of weaving is to create a lot of small weavings. Better to make our mistakes on a small scale than on a large scale. One of the other advantages of starting small is that you can test out how to make shapes in your weavings. When you first start out, creating basic squares, triangles or circles can seem like a bit of a mystery. So, if you are up for practicing shapes — or just want to add these cute bookmarks to your collection — then you will love this simple DIY woven bookmarks tutorial. These slits are what will hold your threads in place. See the full tutorial on how to make this cardboard loom here.
