Attach tassels to the narrow end of the bookmark.

How to make a tassel:

Cut 4-5 12-inches strips of yarn. Lay them together in bundle. Use a crochet hook to pull the center of the strips through an area where you want to tassel attached. Pull the yarn so that you have a big enough loop to pull all the ends through by hand. Adjust and pull it tight as you like and you're done.
