Handmade bookmark from Stephanie Klauck featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps #crossstitch

Raise your hand if you nabbed the latest design in our series of cross-stitch Die-namics. This Die-namics includes a hole and reinforcement piece allowing you to add your choice of coordinating ribbon, twine, or tassel to complete the bookmark. Team member Stephanie has taken the time to create a video tutorial for creating custom tassels that are ideal for topping your works of art.

Watch How to Create a Bookmark Tassel for the Cross-Stitch Bookmark Die-namics on YouTube or by playing the embedded video below.

Even if the Cross-Stitch Bookmark Die-namics isn’t your thing, these addictive little tassels will find their way onto cards, tags, and even home decor items. Now, go forth and tassel!

You can find more tutorials from the team on their blogs — we hope you’re inspired to enjoy a weekend full of creating projects you love!
