Step 1: What You Will Need

To make a steampunk bookmark you will need a hot glue gun, glue gun sticks, gears (I purchased mine at Micheal's),ribbon of a steampunk color, (Mine is silver) and whatever other steampunk accessories you want.

Step 2: Making the Base of the Bookmark

For this step, you will glue the gears together using the hot glue. You can arrange them however you want, just as long as it is thick enough to be a bookmark. On the back, glue a strip if hot glue down the back so it doesn't fall apart. On the front, remove as much hot glue as possible.

Step 3: Adding the Ribbon

At the top of your bookmark, tie the ribbon to a hole in one of the gears. This is when you may want to add accessories, like keys. You can use any knot to tie the ribbon, I prefer a bow. Your bookmark is complete!

Step 4: Use the Bookmark

You can use this bookmark for any kind of book, but it looks most fabulous in a steampunk book.
