Welcome Back

After watching the recent Docrafts & Beaders Companion shows where they demo’d Shamballa style bracelets, I was inspired to have a try myself. Wanting to add my own spin to the concept I created a book tie.

Shamballa inspired Book Tie

Shamballa inspired Book Tie

Materials Used

  • Waxed cotton cord 2mm thick
  • Note book is a Daler Rowney sketch book

I find book ties helpful in keeping a page, like a book mark. For keeping a book closed, and for holding pages in place while you are sketching on location.

In place of beads I tied Chinese Button knots on the ends of the cords.

Hope you like it, it was quick to make and perhaps I’ll make some of these for Christmas gifts.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Billie 🙂
