How to Make a Wire Heart Bookmark
- 20 cm (about 8 inches) craft wire – 16 gauge or 18 gauge
- Craft pliers (needle nose, round nose and wire cutters; I highly recommend getting this very inexpensive beginner jewelry making kit with all three. It’s a really good deal, and you’ll likely end up needing all three at some point in time while crafting.)
Note: You can measure a longer piece of wire if you wish to create a bigger bookmark with really big twirl patterns.
Hold the wire at one end and use the needle nose pliers to bend a small loop.
Coil the wire around the loop to create a twirl pattern. Keep the coils loose with some space between the curves. Do 2 or 3 loops.
If you are doing a bigger bookmark, you can coil it more than 3 times using your longer piece of wire.
Repeat the same process on the other end of the wire. Try to keep both twirl patterns the same size.
Use the ruler to measure the middle point of the wire. Bend the wire at that point and bringing the 2 scrolls towards each other.
Tighten the bend using round nose pliers and bring in the twirly ends to create a heart.
