It's been a little while since I shared a tutorial and this one is a speedy little number! In just a few steps you can make a lovely stitched paper bookmark so you'll never lose your place in your chosen read again.

1. All you need is a piece of A5 paper (I used handmade paper made from recycled cotton rag so it has a lovely texture and an uneven edge), a piece of leftover ribbon, and either a needle and thread or a sewing machine.

2. Fold your piece of A5 paper in half lengthways and sew all the way around the edge in a contrasting coloured thread, to sew the two sides together. I did this on a sewing machine as it's super speedy but you can just as easily sew it by hand. Punch a hole at one end of your bookmark.

3. Thread a piece of ribbon through the hole and knot it. Voila! You have a pretty little bookmark! You could further embellish the bookmark by embroidering or stamping or whatever you like to make it your own.

I hope you found this tutorial useful!
