Review: Beaded Bungee Bookmarks & Giveaway

I am so excited to share with you some super cute bookmarks from Twin Cottage Industries. I recently received two samples in the mail for review, and I cannot tell you how adorable both of them are. In fact, I can't decide which one I love the most.

These Beaded Bungee Bookmarks are incredibly unique and a fantastic idea for readers on-the-go! The bookmarks are made with a thin piece of elastic that wraps around a book to keep your place. In addition, they are embellished with all sorts of cute beads and charms. The best thing about the Beaded Bungee Bookmarks is that the elastic is adjustable! You can adjust the elastic to fit any sized book without damaging the pages.

Check out this video about how the Beaded Bungee Bookmarks work:

I was fortunate enough to receive a Paper Bead and Affirmation Charm bookmark -- mine is pastel with an attached circular "Love" charm -- along with a Hobbies one that represents knitting. Both are precious and represent me perfectly! There are tons of designs to choose from including ones for kids, ones with colorful flip flops, and ones with tea and coffee charms. They even have some for fans of wine and spirits!

The Beaded Bungee Bookmarks were created by identical twin sisters (and best friends) who are responsible for making each and every one. They are proud to employ a young adult with mental illness (who happens to be one of the their daughters) as well as women with a need to work from home. All of their items are made in the USA, and they donate 1% of their gross sales to the Psychiatric Service Dog Society.

I absolutely love my Beaded Bungee Bookmarks and I think they make a great gift -- either for yourself or another reader in your life. They also make La Lanyards, Water Bottle Charms, Key Clips, Adorapulls, and Ewe Too Soaps. I think all of their products are priced very reasonably with bookmarks ranging from $4.99 to $7.49.

Thanks to the folks at Twin Cottage Industries, I am allowed to giveaway three bookmarks to three lucky readers. This giveaway has a very more steps than my normal ones, but I assure you it's still very simple to enter.
