How to make a pretty bookmark

This is Maryam again.
Today I made a bookmark and I want to show you how to make one.
This could be a lovely Eid present for someone special.

The things you will need for this project are:

One patterned square paper (I used origami paper)
Hole puncher
Wool or thin ribbon

 First fold the paper in half, glue the sides together.

Fold the paper again
and glue the sides like you did before.

Cut the corners round like below.

Punch a hole in the top middle of the paper.
Then tie your wool or ribbon with a double knot.

Feed your beads through the wool or ribbon.
Make sure you knot the ends well, over and over again, so
that the beads don't fall off.

And there you have your pretty bookmark to keep for yourself
or give it as a gift to a loved one.
