These are more than just a book mark. They are magnetic so the stay in place and mark the line of the pattern or recipe that you are on. This is a life saver when the book has to be closed and you don’t want to write on the page to remember or if you are working on a knitting pattern with lots of row work this helps keep you on track. Simple to make with thin magnet material and ribbon, these make great gifts.
First measure the width of the ribbon and cut a length of magnet to fit.
Peel the paper to reveal the adhesive on the magnet and stick it to the back side of the ribbon.
Cut another length of magnet, leave about half an inch of empty space of ribbon, this is for the fold, then apply the second strip of magnet. Trim the ribbon at the end.
I used the business card magnets because they were very thin but still had strong magnet hold. This makes for a thinner bookmark and will not crinkle the pages if used as a book mark.
There are magnet sheets available as well as thin magnet tape, for different lengths, but I just used strips cut and placed right up against each other to create the longer bookmark.
Plan on making these as stocking stuffers for all the knitters, crocheters, bakers and readers in your life.
