Button Paperclip Bookmarks

Materials

What you will need:

  • Large paperclips
  • Coloured or fancy buttons
  • Hot glue gun (needs adult supervision for younger children)
  • Felt or thin satin ribbons

Preparation

This craft is easy and only requires a few items to create fun bookmarks.


How to create:

  • Step 1: Sort through your button collection and choose buttons for your bookmark craft. If you are using coloured large paperclips, match up the colours with the buttons.
  • Step 2: Warm up glue gun. Please ensure safety first with younger children as the glue gun temperature gets quite hot. Cut small pieces of felt or ribbon smaller than the size of the button.
  • Step 3: Glue the paperclip to the button. The felt or ribbon should be glued on back of the button. This will keep the glue sealed in and leave a smooth finish on the back.

The next time you are taking a break from your book, or need to remember your spot in your favourite cook book, you will just be able to reach for these creative bookmarks.
