How to Create a Charm Faux Leather Bookmark

Hello everyone!!!  Kymona from Kreative Kymona here today to share how to create a charm faux leather bookmark for your planner/journal.

I love my Hobonichi planner but it doesn't come with a bookmark to mark the page and this cover doesn't come with one either.  So I decided to create my own.

Let's take a look:

Interesting right!!  Does that bookmark look familiar? It should, its Craft Fantastic Faux Leather Necklace!! 

Yes, you can use the Faux Leather Necklace pieces to create a bookmark.  Depending on the size of your planner/journal, trimming the leather piece might me necessary.  

Here's how I created this bookmark:

  1. Measure the planner/journal using the Faux Leather to see if it fits around the pages.  
  2. For this planner, the faux leather is too long. 
  3. To make it fit, take your time and take the metal piece off of one end using 2 Multi Purpose Jewelry Pliers and cut the faux leather to desired size.
  4. Carefully put the metal piece back, making sure to tighten it onto the faux leather. 
Now that bookmark is complete, now its time to personalize the bookmark.

I had some basic small charms lying around my craft room so I decided to use them. They were already on clips so clipping them in place was easy. 

This charm set needed some color and the faux leather necklace had the silver chain hanging so I decided to make use of it. 

I used a small jump ring to add the Butterfly Link Tray and a purple tiny glass bling to add character to this charm set.  I used another jump ring to add my initial charm to finish off the set. 

I'm in love with my new charms.  I can't wait to make more for my other planners!!!
