Tassel Bookmarks

Over the years, I've repurposed almost anything flat for use as a bookmark. Old business cards work until they fall out on the train, leading whoever finds the card to think you work at a place where you no longer work.  I've even seen a tissue used as a bookmark.

Clothing tags - specifically, the sturdy cardboard tags with the brand name featured prominently - can be used as bookmarks too. They're the right size, they hold up better than paper, a lot of corporate logos have flair, and they play into society's obsession with using clothing brands as statements of identity. 

Nonetheless, clothing tags are frequently smaller than commercially sold bookmarks, and they have holes where they were originally connected to the clothing items.

Adding a tassel solves these problems.

Here is the finished product:

Fashionable reading!
