- Cut a strip of cardstock the same width of your ribbon by 2x the width long. My ribbon is 1 1/2” wide so my cardstock is 1 1/2”x3”. Fold both corners to the middle as shown.
Cut a triangle of cardstock to fit the inside of the bookmark.
Cut a ribbon 1” longer than your card-stock strip.
Adhere the ribbon to the front of the strip, flip it and glue down the ends as shown.
Fold up the bookmark and glue the cardstock triangle to the inside securing the back flaps.
