in a few simple steps we will create a bookmark decorated with takkti's beautiful washi tapes.

- pencil and ruler

- a scalpel

- a hole puncher

- tassel

- takkti washi tapes

with the help of the pencil and the ruler we decide the width of our bookmark - try to stay between 4 and 5 cm, to make it neither too big nor too small.

you can choose the preferred length of your bookmark.

with the cutter or with scissors, cut the cardboard.

and now decide which washi tapes you're going to use: i chose the red washi tape and the lantern washi tape because they are my favorites!

start to cover the cardboard by alternating the two patterns. once finished, with the help of a scalpel, cut the excess washi tape, being careful to stay close to the edge. in this way we will obtain a perfectly cut bookmark.

remember that it is possible to cover both sides of the bookmark, or leave the back for a quote or empty to mark the most beautiful pages of the book you are reading.

with the help of the hole puncher, make a hole through which we will pass a tassel.
