Beaded Bookmarks

This is a fun craft that kids can do in minutes. These bookmarks make great gifts.

Crafting Time:

About 5 - 10 minutes each

What You Need:

  • collection of old greeting cards, all occasions will work
  • paper punch
  • ribbon
  • colorful plastic beads
  • blunt tapestry needle (optional)


  1. Choose a card design you like. Cut a strip from the front of the card and then punch a hole in one end of the strip.
  2. Cut 2, 10 inch lengths of ribbon for each bookmark. Thread both pieces of ribbon through the hole and knot the ribbon onto the end of the bookmark. This will give you four lengths of ribbon hanging from the card strip (bookmark).
  3. Thread the beads onto the ribbon. This may be done with or without the assistance of a tapestry needle. Leave room at the end of each ribbon length to tie a knot, which will hold the beads in place. Continue in the same manner to add beads to all ribbon lengths.
  4. These bookmarks make great, inexpensive gifts for friends and family members. If you have a special event, such as a spring birthday, or holiday in mind for the giving, choose a card front that will match that event or season.
