  1. First make a pattern. The pagekeep is 9 inches long, 1 1/2 inches in the center narrow part and 2 1/2 inches at the widest parts on the ends. Round the ends.
  2. Stitch down through the center narrow part to sew two pieces together. You can embroider a design on the end through only one layer of the material.

I bet a couple of large washers from the hardware store would work too! For large text books or those thinner craft books that you don't want to ruin the spine, by bending way back, a longer holder with a bit heavier weight would be great too! Thanks for the great tutorial! :0)

Unique idea. Love the shape. I have loads of "rocks" from virgin islands to use. Kisses to You!

I think this is a great simple craft . I love walking on the beach so picking up beach rocks will now be added to my walk. I will be making this for friends and family, Mahalo (thank you) from Maui for you great craft

This is really aneat and cute idea, and a must for any of us that really enjoy reading.

@Crafter 1615511 You lay it across an open book to 'keep your page'' Very useful for cookbooks.

Sounds and looks like a good one, but how does one use them please?

I was looking at this and thought about magnets insted of rocks.
