Method one: I cut a length of tape slightly longer than a hardback book, fixed on a ribbon clamp at either end with jewellry pliers and decorated one end with home made tassels made from embroidery thread.
I dug out some charms from the jewellry ‘bits box’ which I attached to the other clamps with jump rings. Made 3!
method 2: A simple ribbon book mark will be less robust but just as easy using clamps and tassels at both ends.
Method 3: two matching pieces of fabric were ironed to heat and bond then to the middle of the hessian piece. I sewed a decorative stitch around the fabric to halt the hessian fraying too much, then frayed the bottom up to the stitching to make a fringe. A ribbon clamp and cord tassel at the top finished this. However the back isn’t so pretty so this isn’t a success.
