Is your Valentine a bookworm? Consider crafting up a fuzzy pom pom bookmark to gift to them this Valentine’s Day! Learn how to create a heart shaped pom using our Pom Tassler and download our free “Made with love” printable gift tag to make this Valentine’s gift extra special!

To create a round pom pom bookmark:

  1. Insert the pegs and the yarn clip into the Pom Tassler, choosing whichever size you want. Place the end of the yarn  through the yarn clip and loosely tie around the pegs, which should be facing outward. Press the handle to watch your yarn spin.
  2. Tie off the pom pom middle with three very long pieces of yarn. It will leave you with six tails of string.
  3. Cut the loops on both sides of the knot to remove from the Pom Tassler. Flatten the pom pom and place the template over the shape to trim the yarn pieces to create the pom pom. Be careful not to cut the long tails!
  4. Braid the tail strings together making one thick braid long enough to fit through a book. Tie off the end.

 

To create a heart pom pom:

  1. Repeat steps 1-2 above using lots of yarn to create a very dense pom pom.
  2. After tying on the center strings, hold onto that long tail as if it were a handle. Start trimming to create a heart shape by first creating a steep angle at the bottom in a V shape.
  3. Next find the center at the top and trim those lengths very short to begin forming the two humps for the top of the heart.

 

To create a tassel to hang at the bottom of your bookmark:

  1. Insert the pegs and the yarn clip into the Pom Tassler, choosing whichever size you want. Place the end of the yarn  through the yarn clip and loosely tie around the pegs, which should be facing outward. Press the handle to watch your yarn spin.
  2. Once your bundle is made to the size you want, tie off with a piece of yarn. Make sure it’s not centered but closer to one of the pegs to create a short head and a longer tassel body.
  3. Remove the bundle from the Pom Tassler. Thread a plastic needle with another piece of yarn and thread through the head of the tassel creating a tie at the top. This will allow you to hang or tie the tassel onto something else once complete.
  4. Use scissors to cut the loops on the bottom of the body side of the bundle to create the tassel look.
