Pink.... of course. These are so super easy to make. I'd say 20 minutes, tops. I have used a couple of various materials, but here's how I made this one:
- 2 ft. (approx.) Thin hemp cording (sold in the jewelry dept. @ Michael's - comes in black, white, and brown)
- Charms for each end (I have also used old "hanging" earrings!)
- beads of your choice (make sure the center hole is wide enough for your string)
I start by stringing the charm for one end. Pull through enough cording to double back through the beads. Then string your beads, working the extra string through as you go. When you get to the last bead (here, I always finish with a big silver bead with a wide hole... you'll see why!), tie a couple of good knots. THEN... pull that big silver bead over your knot. Clip away extra string!
For the other side, I string my beads starting with the last (that big silver bead), stringing my second charm on last. Work string back through, making sure your final length is not too long, tie your knot, and pull your big silver bead over your knot. It always holds!
Now, for the finishing touch! I made these cards to hang the book thong from. This is sure to bring a smile to your reciepient's face! How cute would this be for a "End of the Year" teacher's gift?
I am a firm believer that a font should reflect a personality. (I have mentioned that I stinkin' love fonts, right?) So... you can make this frilly or silly, the choice is yours! But seriously, it's called a Book Thong... the end result will probably be silly.... :)
