DIY Button Bookmarks

November 16, 2015 | DIY, For Fun, Interest

Making something functional from ordinary household objects often makes me feel like a super hero– it’s the little things. These super-cute DIY button bookmarks make great inexpensive gifts for back-to-school or even an easy gift your little one can make for their teacher this holiday season. Pair it with a hand-picked novel of your choice as a great gift idea for the bookworm in your life. They’re so simple to make and your kids will have a blast. Plus it’s an ideal way to use up all those runaway buttons from outfits past!

  • Paperclips
  • Buttons
  • Hot Glue Gun or E6000 glue
  • Scrap fabric, ribbon, felt or Washi tape

1. Gather your supplies including paper clips, buttons, hot glue gun and scrap fabric or ribbon.
2. Next, hot glue your paper clip or use heavy-duty glue to secure your paperclip to the back of your button.
3. Finish off by sealing the back with a piece of felt, a fancy ribbon or a piece of Washi-tape.
4. Alternatively, you can glue two buttons on each side of the paper clip– the options are virtually endless!

Simply glue, press & enjoy!
