These are SO simple and easy! Cute bookmarks for all those kids going back to school soon.
What you need:
- Ribbon (grosgrain works best)
- Thread or embroidery floss
- Lighter or a fray away product (I prefer the lighter since it it faster)
Take you ribbon and measure it into 18 inch pieces. If it wrinkled, like mine always is, you can give it a quick trip under the iron.
To keep the ends from fraying with use, you can use Fray Away, or a lighter. I use the lighter since it is faster. Just make sure that the ribbon you are using is not flammable.
Start with one end of the ribbon and fold it over, about one inch. (Photo 1) Place your button where you like and sew it on.
(Photo 2) You can use regular thread or embroidery floss. The embroidery floss comes in great colors and holds well.
And the next thing you know, you have bookmarks!
Be sure to look for a few special buttons. They cost a little more but them make with most adorable bookmarks. Remember~Children use things they help pick out themselves and take part in making.
Have your say
