Stitch Markers

I know that everyone has their own way of making stitch markers. Some just use a piece of yarn, and others may buy some along with other knitting supplies. My method is a bit different, but it provides me with dozens of stitch markers, and it doesn't take a lot of supplies.

What you will need:
A sheet of paper, a roll of packaging tape, scissors, and a hole puncher.

On one section of the paper, layer both the front and back with packaging tape.
Cut this out from the rest of the sheet of paper. Send it through the hole puncher and leave about 1 centimeter in between each new hole.

Now, cut them up.

Now you should have a bunch  of squares with holes. Trim these squares down individually to the width you need.

And this is what the finished product looks like! If you're disorganized like me and lose stitch markers all over the place, this is a great method to make sure you'll always have enough. It's cheap, fast, and doesn't require any supplies besides what you probably already have at home.
