Supplies

  1. Embroidery Floss
  2. Paperclip
  3. Embroidery Needle
  4. Needle Threader
  5. Tassel Maker
  6. Scissors

Instructions

Step 1: Wind Embroidery Floss; Begin to wind the embroidery floss around the tassel maker. Depending on the tassel maker you use, you may need to use a differing amount of thread. It takes a single strand to be wound about 40 times to make a decent sized tassel. If you have three colors, wind them around together 13 times to be as close to 40 as possible. When you have finished, cut at the end.

Step 2: Open a Paperclip and Thread through Tassel Head; Now add the paperclip. Start by bending the outside end of the clip just enough so you can fit it through the tassel maker under the loops of embroidery floss. Then with the floss still on the tassel maker, fit the paperclip under all the loops on the top side of the tassel. From here, you can bend the paperclip back to its original shape to keep everything a bit more secure for the next step.

Step 3: Tie Tassel; From here you can remover your tassel from the tassel maker by carefully sliding it off. With the paperclip closed, everything should say in place fairly well. Now cut another piece of embroidery floss about 12 inches long. This is what will be used to tie the top of the tassel. Position the thread on the bundle and tie a knot, trying to get it as close to under where the paperclip is as possible. In order to make knot more secure, tie the tassel right against the paperclip, flip it over, and tie another knot. Then flip it over once more, and tie a double knot. To hide the knot a bit, thread one end of the floss onto an embroidery needle and use that to push the thread through the other side of the tassel, under where you’ve been looping the thread. Repeat this with the other end of the thread and pull tightly. This pulls the knot closer to the tassel.

Step 4: Finish the Tassel Paperclip Bookmark; Snip the bottom loops of the tassel with scissors. Next, using the needle, gently comb the needle through the ends of the tassel. This breaks up the individual strands of the floss. This part is optional, but it makes the tassel look that much better. Lastly, trim bottom of tassel so everything looks nice and even.
