Poems for Secret Sister Bookmarks

Date Posted: 07:40:24 06/16/05 Thu
Author: Sassy
Subject: Poem needed for 'Secret Sister' bookmark

We have a secret sister group with the ladies ministry at our church and I try to send mine a little surprise every week or so. I have made bookmarks for her but thought it would add just that extra little bit if it had a poem to go along with it. Her name is Laurie. Could anyone please help me with a cute poem to send along with the bookmarks? Thank you so much! Hugs, Sassy

Hi Sassy, hope you'll like these...

Here's a little marker
A place it helps you find
Though we are 'secret sisters'
Our friendship is entwined.

These bookmarks are special
They mark a place for you
They are also a reminder:
'Secret sisters' we are so true!

Ideas for bookmarks

Date Posted: 19:14:14 04/05/05 Tue
Author: MaryP
Subject: Bookmark suggestion please

Every year at Mother's Day I make bookmarks for my friends. This year my ideas are not working all that great. Any suggestions? Here is what I have so far: I bought some very nice tassels in different spring colors, and I thought they would be cute on some wide 1 1/2" ribbon that is stripped or dotted, but how to attach the tassels, what other kind of decorations would look good, and any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.


> Re: Bookmark suggestion please -- Patty, 00:28:24 04/06/05 Wed [1]

Do the tassels have hanging loops? If they do, maybe you could put in some small, metal grommets or eyelets (like the holes at the top of shower curtains) in the top of the wide ribbon and then loop the tassel hanging loops through it. I would fold the top of the ribbon down about 1/4" twice before putting in the grommet through all thicknesses, so the frayed edge of the ribbon is on the inside of the fold.
Hope this makes sense!

[> Re: Bookmark suggestion please -- Nancy, 17:20:43 04/06/05 Wed [1]

I just ripped out an idea of bookmarks out of Better Home
and Gardens, February issue.
They printed on the computer some sayings, on translucent vellum. The Font the size that would fit on a bookmark.
They cut these and a printed cardstock the size of a book mark. The vellum was placed on top of the cardstock. They punched a hole on the top, which is where I think you could attach your tassles.
These were very cute, of course they were for Valentine's Day, but would be wonderful for any day.
Hope this helped you.

[> Re: Bookmark suggestion please -- MaryP, 00:24:44 04/07/05 Thu [1]

Thanks for more suggestions. I will keep trying different ideas to come up with what will work best. I really want to use ribbon instead of paper. But then I can't print anything on it. I could sew or glue something to decorate the ribbon. I was thinking of something cute at the top. I don't scrapbook, but they might have some good decorative things to attach that would dress it up a bit. Any more ideas?

[> Re: Bookmark suggestion please -- Estelle in New Mexico, 00:41:40 04/07/05 Thu [1]

Hi Mary:

Any chance you can get some wallpaper sample books? Go ask at your Home Depot or those places that sell wallpaper, they usually give them away.

The wallpaper will make some beautiful bookmarks, you can glue the coordinating colors back-to-back and just punch a hole at top (with a grommet or without). The wallpapers are usually so beautiful!!

[> Re: Bookmark suggestion please -- PattyWV, 06:06:18 04/07/05 Thu [1]

I saw some bookmarks that were a little different. Sorry I don't have a picture. They had made the bookmarks a bit longer than usual, but they were done as a horizontal bookmark. Maybe a 10 inch length and about 1 1/2 - 2 inch width. It was printed with a little poem about marking your page and line. That's due to the fact that it was made to fold in half. There was a magnet strip on the inside of each section. It closes together wherever you put it and does a great job at marking both your page and line.

[> Re: Bookmark suggestion please -- bonniek, 11:51:53 04/08/05 Fri [1]

Maybe you could stamp on the ribbon, you'd have to try it out to make sure it wouldn't bleed on the ribbon or come off on the book either. Or maybe you could practice on the ribbon with a heat embossing tool. That would make a very pretty look if it works.

Poem for Grandmother crochet bookmark

Author: Marciaot
Subject: Poem for Bookmark with Grandmother's Crochet Trim

I found some neat bookmarks at Bed, Bath and Beyond with a "locket" dangling from the bookmark. I plan to place a piece of crocheted trim made by my grandmother (passed away in 1972) inside the bookmarks. I will be sharing these with 18 family members.

Any quick ideas for a poem or something special to go with these bookmarks? Thanks


[> Re: Poem for Bookmark with Grandmother's Crochet Trim -- jacksmum, 18:26:12 12/20/04 Mon [1]

Hi Marciaot
I had responded to your request before but it was now on page three of the archives so you might not have seen it. I hope this helps. Sue

A little bit of Grandma
still surrounds us all
so here's a special reminder
even though it's only small.
Inside the bookmark locket
is something Grandma made
and it will always be with you
whenever a page is saved.
And the bookmark is a token
of a very special bond
that family ties bind us
in life and then beyond.

Poem, link: Bookmark for Son in the army

Date Posted: 11:09:18 06/07/04 Mon
Author: marcia
Subject: Bookmark for my son off to the army

The last few weeks have been horrible! We've had the move made in Hades itself, with the devil leading the way. On top of that my oldest son (22) left on Wednesday to go to the army. It's what he wanted to do and I'm very proud of him for his decision. I could live with it a whole lot better if he hadn't chosen Special Forces though.

After he left my youngest son (15) and I just couldn't find anything to occupy ourselves. When I'm upset I turn to the kitchen or crafts. Nothing in the kitchen seemed to be the right thing to cook/bake, so I turned to crafts. I had just sent in my bookmarks for the swap and I guess they were still on my mind. I made bookmarks to keep Matthew in our family/friends prayers. At the top of each one I put one of the paper clip angels done with yellow ribbon. I'm not much of a poet, but here's the verse I came up with:

Let this little angel
Remind you my friend.
Matthew's off to the army
His country to defend.

Mark your page
Each night as you read.
Then say a prayer for him
In his hour of need.

Pray for his safety,
Soundness and health,
Pray God will surround him
With great comfort and wealth.

Pray for his return home
To family and friends.
Pray for his courage and honour
© 2004 Marcia

They turned out really cute and a lot of people have asked for one, which made me feel really good.....the more praying for Matthew the better I like it. Please keep my son in your prayers as well. There are times when I'm not sure what I'd do without the outlet here on voy forums to occupy my mind.

Thanks to everyone. Marcia

[> Re: Bookmark for my son off to the army -- KrafteeKaren, 14:16:45 06/07/04 Mon [1]

Marcia...our oldest son has been in the Air Force since January of last year, he graduated from Basic training finally in July after he broke his foot and had to come home for a 30 day sick leave. Right now he is in New Mexico finishing up the last little bit of training. He is in Special Operations in the rescue part, where they will fly in to rescue troops or will re-fuel aircraft, etc. After he completes his training then he will go to Arizona, which will be his permanent station. After all the processing in Arizona then he will head to Afghanistan for 180 days, then back to the states for 30 days and back over.
At anytime you need to talk going through this, please don't hesitate to email me, I would be glad to give you what support you need during this time.

Link, idea: Poem Paperclip bookmark

Subject: new to me paperclip bookmark

I received a Current catalogue the other day. In it is a bookmark made from a jumbo gold (or brass?) colored paperclip. At the top of the paperclip is a butterfly. Looks like its metal. Now, I have never seen these before and quickly thought of this as a craft project. I've already got my paperclips. Now I am going to be on the lookout for "trinkets" (probably plastic or cloth type) to glue to the clip. Just wanted to share in hopes this is a new idea for some of you. Have a good day! Elaine


[> Re: new to me paperclip bookmark -- Carla Robbins, 23:47:23 06/12/04 Sat [1]

I was just wondering, but would a button, the fancy buttons with the back holes, I think its called a shank, I mean wouldn't one of the buttons work on the clip to make bookmarks? I may just have to try this. Thanks for the picture. Carla

[> Re: new to me paperclip bookmark -- jenjoy, 21:38:18 06/08/04 Tue [1]

How cute! Where did you get your giant paper clips? Are they metal or plastic? Thanks for sharing! Jennifer

[> Re: new to me paperclip bookmark -- Elaine, 07:35:10 06/09/04 Wed [1]

Hi Jen,
The paperclips that I got are the regular large metal 2 inch clips. I got them at Staples. (100 to a pkg. for $2.29) I had no intention on getting them until I saw them while looking for something else and then I remembered about the bookmarks so I figured while I was there... (I only have 500 million projects already lined up for me to do - what's one more added to the list?) Elaine :0)

Some time back someone posted a poem for a bookmark made with a butter knife. Does anyone remember it or have it? I would like to make some to sell. Thanks

[> Re: bookmark poem needed -- TLC, 19:59:51 07/24/04 Sat [1]

I FOUND IT! It was in the wrong file. It was back on 8/10/03 that I printed it. No wonder I couldn't find it.
It was written by Emily. She said she bought a butter knife at a craft mall that was made into a bookmark. They drilled a hole on the bottom of the handle, which will be the top of the bookmark. They flattened it and stringed beads. I found some cute butter knives that already have the holes in them so hopefully I can make some.

Twinrme/ Charlene responded with the following.

Take a close look at this bookmark,
Why it is a butter knife!
Take it along to the park,
It's had a change of life.
Once was old, but now it is new,
You have something quite unique,
Don't let your books get overdue,
What you own now is very chic!!!!

Subject: Beaded Book Marks

I received a message that our local thrift shop was looking for crafters to put some home made items. I was thinking of making some beaded book marks. Can someone help me with a poem to attach.. I was thinking something along the lines of curling up with a good book.. or something. I just can't get it started. Does anyone make these or other types of jewelry? Any ideas on how they are selling?

Chris, your post wasn't being ignored, honest. It's like Carolyn said we (the poets) tend to pick up on the posts that actually say 'poem wanted for...' before looking at the other posts. I only looked at this because I thought you were wanting to show us some or a site to look at.

[> Re: Beaded Book Marks Thanks! -- Chris, 12:20:14 10/02/05 Sun [1]

Hi ladies and thanks so much for your suggestions and posts!

We live near an army base and our thrift shop is really an outlet for us to get rid of our "too small" clothes, household items when we move around (we are in Germany so our voltage on appliances are different.. when someone comes from the states its a good idea to shop their first for some good deals on appliances = ) ) couches, linens etc. The profits are put back into the local community here in Germany as well as the military community by way of scholarships etc.

The shop is looking for some crafty items for their place and so far, I've seen some wood crafts (with USA theme or Germany American theme), bath salts, wine charm markers (the lady that did these did a wonderful job but I think we all have a few sets now!) I was looking for something different, maybe something that could be a "smallish" gift for no problems in shipping. I made a really nice 'book thong or marker" and my friend loved it and gave me the suggestion. I use seed beeds and then alot of dangle charms and lampwork beads. I'll try and post a picture when I'm finished.
Thanks again

Subject: Bookmark "tails"

I am making some machine embroidered shamrock bookmarks. I need suggestions for what to use for tails on them. I am thinking just using some narrow green ribbon. Any other suggestion appreciated. TIA Laurel

[> Re: Bookmark "tails" -- chris, 11:57:08 03/08/06 Wed [1]

How about some beads?

I have used ribbon, yarn and even fun fur or boa yarn (sometimes yarn and fun fur) on bookmarks. With embroidered bookmarks (I bet they are pretty!), I'm thinking the narrow satin ribbon would look best.

Laurel the green ribbon sounds nice with maybe a few beads attached at the end and tie a knot to hold them on. Or maybe you could put at the end of the ribbon a charm, a nice shamrock maybe.

I'll try to post a picture tomorrow when my son can help.

Poem: Embroidered Patriotic Bookmark for Military Member

Date Posted: 09:10:22 03/21/06 Tue
Author: friend in need
Subject: Poem and tag needed

I am in need of a tag and poem for a bookmark for a friend in the military stationed overseas. It is red, white, and blue, FSL, and has a yellow ribbon on it and the word thanks.(I made it on a embroidery machine) I would like the poem to let him know that we appreciate all that they do for us. I know that they get to feeling down and want this to be a little "pick me up". But then you all are so good at saying what we mean that I really don't need to say what I want. I think you all are mind readers.
TIA a friend in need

Dear friend in need, here's a poem from me...

This bookmark is special
'cause it was made for you
It serves many purposes
Comes with a message too.
In every stitch is a thank you
Hope it brings a smile to your face,
While you're reading your favourite book
It will certainly mark your place.
And if it's a "pick me up"
That you feel you need today
Just hold onto this little token
And feel our love all the way.

I can't do the tag right now but will check in later ...

Poems: Tin Filled with Corner Bookmarks

Date Posted: 23:35:35 05/17/06 Wed

Subject: Poem for Corner Bookmarks

I am doing an altered mint tin...full of little corner bookmarks for an avid reader. May I ask for a short little poem to go on a tag for this token gift?
Thanks, Annie

[> Re: Poem for Corner Bookmarks -- fauxma, 00:59:49 05/18/06 Thu [1]

what an awesome idea Annie... I'm not a poet.. but thought I'd duck in and take a peek... I'm sure the word wizards will come up with something awesome for your gift...

Sitting pretty on the corner of the book
Reminding you that you really should look
And as you read the very next chapter
Your friends love is with you forever

wellllllllll it needs some fine tuning... but it's a start....

Hello Annie & Annie
HUGS to you both.
Nice try fauxma :)

A tin full of bookmarks
for corners you see
they will save your spot
whereever that may be.
So if you lose one
it won't matter at all
if you look inside this tin
you'll see it's really full!

[> Re: Poem for Corner Bookmarks -- kelli, 07:03:39 05/18/06 Thu [1]

Great poems ladies! : ) Here is mine:

I'll sit upon the corner,
Pretty as can be,
And when you want to read again
I'll be quite plain to see!

Even if you need to mark
Two pages, three or four,
Just look inside this little tin
And you'll find plenty more!

Subject: Poem for crochet dress corner bookmark - needs tweaking

Those crochet dress bookmarks are so adorable! I thought I would try my hand at writing a poem. Feel free to tweak away.

If you love to read,
I have just what you need!
A cute little dress,
as a corner bookmark
So you can find your place
- even in the dark!

Hiya Jazbo
No tweaking needed your poem is perfect just as it is.

To slip on your pages
and mark the spot
here's a little dress
your place won't be forgot.
And the other books
will turn green you see
as the belle of the bookcase
is read by me.
