If you’ve had your Maker’s Notebook for awhile, you’ve likely ended up with a tassel where the bookmark used to be. The ends of the ribbon markers are not finished or glued and so they fray over time. This is easily fixed. Just dab little beads of white glue along the leading edge (after trimming the fray). It’ll dry clear and your bookmark will remain intact.
