Tassel Decor Inspiration

7

We don’t think we’re alone here when we say tassels are just the best. They can be used for anything from home decor to fashion accessories, and everything in between! We’ve been playing with a lot of tassel as of late because it’s such a fun material fun, and adding it to clothes can instantly make them more funky! Here are some of our favorites. We’ll go as far as to say they’re fan-tassle-stic!

Dipped Neon Tassels

Two loves marry in this photo of dip dyed tassel. We love the pop of neon on an otherwise neutral tassel.

Purple Tone Tassels

The cool purple palette of this tassel garland keeps it from being too bold, with the silver accents adding just the right amount of festive fun!

Assorted Tassels from Ceiling

A ceiling of tassels would be such a cool installation in a craft room! We would be endlessly inspired by just looking up.

Bookmark Your Relaxing Day (Ribbon Bookmark)

1

By Dara

There are certain days when it seems as though the world is moving at the speed of light.  Therefore, sometimes it’s nice to just sit back, relax and enjoy some quite alone time.  For millions and myself, quality time lying in bed or on a comfortable couch with a good book sounds pretty nice, especially on a cold rainy day. 

 This week, I’ve decided to put together a nice bookmark.  I tend to lose my place so this will come in handy.  I used a thick colored stock paper.  Using scissors, I cut off 2″ x 7″.  Then with a hole-punch, I punched the top middle of the paper.  With some cute shell buttons, I was able to embellish my bookmark.  I also found a cute artwork and glued that onto the paper using gem-tac glue.  Keep it mind that the bookmark should be light.  That’s the main reason why I chose shell buttons for decoration.  I then tied a black tassel through the hole at the top of the bookmark.  To finish it off, I glued two ¼” grosgrain ribbons to the back.  My ribbons measured 1 yd long, but yours can be as long or as short as you like as long as it is longer than your book. Remember not to use too much glue when you make yours.  It’ll end up wrinkling the bookmark and make it too heavy.  When using the bookmark, you can tie a bow at the end of the ribbon.  Then tada!  You’re all ready for your relaxing day!
