How to Make Wire Tulip Bookmarks
- Craft wire – 18 gauge
- Craft pliers – cutting, looping and flat nose.
Step by Step Instructions
Hold wire from an end without cutting it from the bundle. Use flat-nose pliers to bend 1.5 cm of the wire to 25-35 degrees, as shown in the picture of this step. This will be the midrib of the leaf.
Continue the wire to bend upwards but slightly bend the wire midway and then create the tip of the leaf (Use flat nose pliers to create the perfect tip). Then bend the wire downwards to complete the leaf, again slightly bend the wire midway.
Flip the wiring pattern to the other side, after making the leaf bend the wire upwards again to create the stem.
After crossing the leaf, create the first petal of the tulip with the help of the flat nose pliers. Use flat-nose pliers to tighten the tip of the petal. Make 2 more petals aligned with the first one.
Now bend the wire inside the flower and coil it towards the center to create a swirly pattern.
Cut wire after reaching the center.
You can mark book pages by inserting pages through the swirly part of the flower.
