    Question Bookmarks--do you like a tassel with beads or plain?

    I just finished a batch for this year's students. I love how they look plain. Once I add the grommet and hemp with beads, I don't like them as much. Sometimes the beads fall off if the knots aren't big enough. I, personally, always use plain bookmarks.

    So--I wanted to go with the majority on this one. Should I add tassel and beads? Yay or nay?

    I like a plain bookmark. The beads and stuff make the book stretch out. Hope this helps you.

    I prefer them to be plain. I don't like the 'bump' made by the beads or tassel.

    I'm assuming the beads and/or tassel would fall to the OUTSIDE of the book pages, so in that case, I like a length of cord and a tassel. Inside the book, I prefer a thin bookmark. In reality, I usually use a scrap of paper or a piece of yarn.

    I generally just use ribbon. Cut length desired, fold in half, thread fold through the hole to form a loop. Finally thread the tail ends of the ribbon through the loop and pull. All done!
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    Plain, i think the beads will get in the way and maybe the tassel will also.

    I have made a tone of magnetic bookmarks for kids - decorated with stickers and the kids really like these a lot. Also, for teens, I have made some "book thongs" - just a cord that goes the length of a book with beads, etc. on each end. HTH

    I have many bookmarks of all kinds. Fancy, plain, etc. I usually wind up using the drop cards from magazines or an old coupon cause I can't FIND my nice bookmarks. What ever works for you. LOL
