It's a bookmark...ribbon...buttons...elastic hairband and there you have it! I didn't come up with the original idea...wish I could remember where I saw it first but it was so simple and cute I had to share!
I made it for my daughter's friend to mark her place in her drawing journal! I also made a small envelope purse for her to carry her drawing supplies but didn't get a good picture but you can go to The DIY Dish and see the project...really simple and cute! The purse slipped easily under the bookmark for safe keeping.
2 buttons (large enough to hold elastic band)
1 hair elastic
Fold the cut edges of the ribbon on one end 1/4" to conceal the raw edge, fold again 1/2" and slip the elastic band into the fold before stitching the width of the ribbon.
Repeat the process for the other end excluding the elastic band.
Sew a button on both ends and place in book hooking the elastic band around the button.
Mark you spot with style...!
I have joined a newbie link party at DebbieDoos Go check her blog out..lots of great ideas!
