I’m going to show you have to make your very own paperclip ribbon planner bookmarks with just a paperclip and a few inches of ribbon! They add a fun element to your planner and are super easy to move around. You can watch the video or read the text- they both say about the same thing.

I really love these cute paperclip ribbon planner bookmarks I see all over the internet. I almost bought some on etsy when I remembered I have a box full of ribbon and a gazillion paperclips leftover from my more corporate days. So, instead I experimented a bit and ended up making myself a fun little stash of them. It turns out they are super easy to make and, I don’t know why exactly, but they instantly double¬†¬†planner-love.

(actual instructions start at 0:18 seconds into video, if you want to skip the fluff!)

Step By Step

  1. First, you need some ribbon that’s about 1/4 inch wide. Don’t be too picky, just in that ballpark.
  2. Cut the ribbon about 4.5 inches long.
  3. Hold your paperclip with the double loop down.
  4. Lay the ribbon on top of the paperclip then wrap the right side around and under the right half of the paperclip and come back up through the inside.
  5. Repeat on the left side.
  6. If your ribbon is a little slick or you just want it to be extra secure, put a dot of glue on the back where the ribbon is wrapping around the paperclip and how it taunt while the glue dries.
  7. Trim the ends and you’re done!
