I started to experiment with cool looking tassels because my dad made a bookmark for my mom's b-day gift and he asked me to make a tassel for the bookmark. I thought i could do it so I tried until i made one that looked really good, when i showed everyone else they told me it looked really good. My mom barely believed we made it.
Step 1: Step 1 materials
strip of paper(this will be the bookmark)
yarn or string
decorating tools (markers, crayons, colored pencils etc.)
Step 2: Step 2 decorate your bookmark
take the strip of paper (the size is up to you),then decorate. when you finish punch a hole(like the one in the picture).
Step 3: Step 3 make the tassel
Wrap some yarn (or string)around your fingers and cut the yarn away from the ball.
Step 4: Step 4 make the tassel (continued)
remove the string from your hand, take another length of string and thread it through the loop and make sure you leave a good amount of string on either side then tie a knot.
cut the loop and trim to desired length
tie the ends together in a double knot (like in the 4th picture)
Step 5: Step 5 attaching the tassel
thread the tassel through the hole on your bookmark
put the tassel through the loop on the other side pull it tight
