Perfect Bookmark

I love this project I am going to share with you today! I feel bad because I know I have seen this on several blogs in the past year, but I don’t remember where. So I can’t give the credit to anyone, so if it was you THANKS!!!

I made one of these for me, my momma, and my sister for Mother’s Day! We all really LOVE a good book!

It is the perfect bookmark, it doesn’t slip out and it holds the pages down on the left side while I read. It is especially neat because if I leave my book open on the table (you know when you get interrupted by your little one’s) it doesn’t flip pages, or close on me making me lose my place!

 

Plus it is cute!

 

And so easy to make, all you need is:

Ribbon

Big Button

Elastic Hair Band

First decide how long you want your bookmark to be, I measured with a medium sized book. Cut your ribbon, then loop around the elastic hair band and sew. I went back and forth about 5 times so it was really strong.

I used Fray Check to seal the edge of the ribbon to help it not fray.

I inserted the ribbon back into the book and figured out where to place my button.

Then hand sew the button on. Trim any excess ribbon, and seal end with fray check.

I sewed on an additional button in case I am using a smaller book. I grabbed a paperback to measure where to place that button. That way the bookmark works for big and small books!

And there you go! All ready for a snuggle in with a good book!
