  • Grosgrain ribbon

  • Scissors

  • Needle 

  • Thread

  • Photo

  • Ribbon

  • Tissue paper

  • Book


  1. Cut a piece of 2-inch-wide grosgrain ribbon 3 inches longer than twice the height of the book; snip a point at each end to prevent fraying.

  2. Sew a 1 1/2-inch-by-2-inch photograph to the ribbon by hand-stitching each corner.

  3. You might offer the bookmark with a new novel, wrapping the book with colored tissue paper and tucking the bookmark between two pages. Finish the gift with a simple ribbon or string.
