“It’s Rough” Duct Tape Bookmark

I’m the type of person who will never (ever!!) put a book down. But sometimes it’s just so hard to keep going when a book gets boring! So I made the “It’s Rough” bookmark for times like these. You’ll need a 14 inch patterned piece of duct tape and a few inches of solid colored tape. You’ll also need a scrap of ribbon.

1. Fold the patterned tape in half so it is 7 in long. Try to make it a bit wrinkly.

2. Next, you can see I added stripes with the solid color. It’s a bit hard to see in the picture, but the blues have very rough, jagged edges. To create this effect, rip the stripes instead of cutting them.

3. Tape the ribbon to the top of the back. Now, take a pair of scissors and cut the edges of the bookmark in a jagged, messy fashion.

Your bookmark is complete! 🙂 Very useful video coming on Thursday….bye for now! P.S. Yup… experimenting with html again- the font is now green!
