Really. Is there anything better than sorting through a pile of buttons...finding the perfect ones? And with friends at that!
Back in the Fall (I'll be catching up blog posts for the rest of my life) I did a program at the local ladies club. Woo, did we have some fun whippin' up these bookmarks! I'm certain most of you have the ingredients to make these in your crafty cupboard---ribbons, buttons, and hot glue. I also had silk leaves, felt flowers and such for layering. You can click the pic to enlarge it for details.
The green trays had everything needed to make the bookmarks---great because you can prep them with materials before hand and then put them out on demand. I learned that from my supervising teacher when I did my student teaching.
I also showed how to attach beaded dangles using the ribbon end findings. The bookmark on the left is my friend Susan's---love how she had beaded dangles and buttons.
You can make 3 or 4 in about 10 minutes (or close to). This is another dandy Mother's day gift especially to go in a special book.
