Beaded Cross Bookmark Craft Kit
My 6-year-old and I made these for relatives and friends. You need to be handy with pliers, but they go together fast and they look nice. One of the bookmarks was missing a wire, but we were able to fashion a new one to complete it.

Everything is in the kit to make the project. If something is missing there is a extra supply packet in the kit. This would be a good kit for older children in the sixth grade and up.

Good for gifting
These are great, easy projects to do. I made them and gave them away to my coworkers and family members. They all said they are using them and they work great. I would recommend this to everyone who wants to make a homemade gift. Good buy!!

For the price it is a great craft to make. I did not use the cross for all the bookmarks. I bought different beads and charms for some of the others. I am giving them to people I work with for Christmas gifts. They look wonderful and did not break the bank so to speak.

The kits were ok. There was a bad head pin in one (rusty) and a cross missing out of another. It was nice there were extra beads, but maybe put in an extra cross and/or head pin in case mistakes happen in packaging.

These metal bookmarks are pretty heavy duty. I make them for an annual church bazaar. The beads that come with it aren't the most wonderful I have seen, so I use my own beads and make each bookmark a different color. They are quite popular at the bazaar and this year I actually ran out and had to order more for custom orders from ladies at the same church.

Worth the money
I liked the convenience of a kit, which is why I ordered it. The bookmarks are fine. I must admit I was disappointed in the plastic bicone beads. They weren't as shiny as I expected. I ended up using my own beads on a couple. But this is still a good buy. You get bookmarks, cross charms and beads for a good price and I would buy this kit again.

Cute, but missing pieces
I love these bookmarks and cannot wait to make more... but I just hope next time I order them, I get all the pieces that are needed to make the number it is supposed to. Luckily I had extra beads and charms to use because a couple of the crosses were missing. But, I think these are nice, sturdy and not at all flimsy. Great gift to make for Sunday school teacher, or Church friend!

I have purchased this several times.
I have bought this product for several years as a Father's Day craft for our 6th grade Sunday School class. They look nice, and the children are proud to give them. They do need some help, though with finishing them off.

Bookmarks were a hit!
Purchased this item for our Girl Scout Troop (9-12 yr old) to make as a gift for the First Communion Classes at our school. With a little instruction they were able to make them without any problem. Book marks were very nice & the children loved them. We ordered 50 and 6 did not have the main "needle" for the beads so we had to get a little creative to finish them & have enough. But... the project & end result were great.
