Ribbon Paper Clip Bookmarks

Such a cute and simple idea!  These little bookmarks are a great craft to make with the kids or to use as teacher gifts.  Giving a book as a gift?  Wrap it up and use these cute little book mark clips on the package instead of a bow!

My oldest daughter is going to love these!  She is our bookworm and reads through her chapter books in just hours.  She hates to lose her place and insists on finishing her page before responding to anyone.  That gets annoying, but I guess it's a good problem to have since she loves reading so much.  Better than the alternative!

Altered to Perfection has a version of these on their site and for sale on etsy.  However, they use jumbo paper clips.  I thought they were a great idea and would work with just a large size paper clip.

You will need 3 to 4 pieces of ribbon about 12 inches long and a large paper clip.  Simply thread all of the ribbon through the paper clip.

Tie all the ribbons together into a double knot.  So simple and you might already have everything you need to make them.
