The way I made the Hawaii charm was I opened Adobe Illustrator (you can use any word processing program you prefer) and typed Hawaii vertically. I typed as many as I could fit on one 8×10 piece of shrinky dink paper I made sure they were spaced apart the way I wanted it.
NOTE: If your cord untwists press it to form a point. That will make it easier to string your beads on. Add a spacer bead, a glass bead, a spacer bead, a glass bead, and a spacer bead.
Tie an overhand knot as close to the last spacer bead as possible.
Measure the length you want the bookmark. I use a book to measure. Tie a knot on that side.
