Probably more decorative than functional, this book strap works as a bookmark too, and makes a stylish touch on books found on your coffee table or being gifted.

It has an elastic stretch lace that adjusts to different book sizes and can be placed between pages as bookmark with its fine thickness. The Vertigo sheet, acting as the main embellishment, can be colored with StazOn inks of your choice and using a word stamp and Imagine’s embossing powder you can have a quote or even personalize the book strap with the name of the person to be given.

Replacing gluing with sewing and the elastic lace with a stronger one, the book strap can definitely hold books and widely be used.
