I love to read…anything and everything…from random columns in post dated newspapers, to current favourites on the web. I also like to take care of my books, keeping the edges from wear-n-tear, using a bookmark instead of folding the pages etc etc.
Today’s CIY is about creating cute wire tabs that can be used as bookmarks, paper clips etc
What do u need?
Jewellry wire (Pliable enough)
Ribbons or strips of colourful cloth
The various shapes that I made are shown below. You can try them, or make your own designs. The idea is to have concentric wire shapes so as to engage the pages in between.
Bend the wire in this shape of a heart with two concentric loops on the top. You can use a thinner gauge, more pliable wire. Add a piece of ribbon to add colour.
Shape2: SQUARE with a heart
Bend the wire in concentric squares, and engage the pages between two layers.
Shape 4: KITTEN
Shape 5: RANDOM
Shape 6: RANDOM again..
Shape 7 : DUCK
Make as many as you like, for yourself or gift them to your book-lover friends. I will keep posting more designs, so keep watching this space.
You can make your own designs and share them here, with our readers. Like and share the post if you like it.
