How to: cool bookmark tassel

Picture of How to: cool bookmark tassel
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.
