Start off by cutting your ribbon to desired lengths. About 7 inches is a great place to start for a bookmark. Using pliers, attach a ribbon crimp to each end of the ribbon.

Cut a piece of wire approximately 3 inches long. Twist one end of the wire around the pliers to create a tight curl. Then, add beads to wire and secure the open end by twisting it around the pliers to create a tight curl. Use a split ring to attach the beaded wire to the other ribbon crimp.

Ribbon Bookmarks with Tassels

After doing some research it was very clear that tassels on a bookmark are very important to some people. You can skip adding beads to the top of your bookmark and instead add tassels if you choose. Many craft store sell pre-made tassels or you can find simple tutorials online on how to make your own tassels.
