DIY Decorative Bookmarks

Are you a page folder? I am! I just can’t help it. Whenever I have a bookmark, I lose it. Unfortunately, I’ve passed this trait on to my oldest daughter. She is an avid reader and a cronic page folder. These bookmarks are a perfect way to keep up with your page and the bookmark!

You’ll need paper clips, buttons, felt, and a glue gun. Glue the paper clip to the back of the button. Cut a small square of the felt and glue it over the back of the paper clip. This will help to secure the paper clip to the button. That’s it. In less than 1  minute, I made three of these bookmarks. If you’re not a reader, these bookmarks can just be very fancy paper clips.

Of course she’s reading Frozen and had to take a picture with her book and favorite bookmark.

DIY Heart Button Ring – Day 5

Posted on

heart ring

 

I am so behind on my Valentine’s Day crafts :(. I’ve had the flu. Now I’m playing catch up to post all of my crafts.

Anyway, I have had this diamond heart button for a while now. I am so happy that I finally decided to make ths ring. First of all, it is FABULOUS! lol. Second of all, it took all of 2 seconds to make (which I like because nowadays, time is limited!).

Here’s what you’ll need:

I bought the button and ring post from Joann’s. Now the button was a bit expensive for my taste ($7), but I had a 40% off coupon.

Step 1 – Remove the shank (the part on the back of the button that sticks out) with some pliers.

Step 2 – Remove the oval shape on the ring post. I couldn’t remove all of the shank. If you are able to remove the shank completely, then skip this step.

Step 3 – Hot glue the button to the ring.

Happy Crafting!

Just follow these five easy steps.

Step 1: Lay your buttons out on the black felt in the design that you want.

Step 2: Glue your buttons to the felt.

Step 3: Cut out the design. Here’s a tip: fold the felt back just a little as you cut along the edges. It’ll give the necklace a more circular outline.

Step 4: Remove any glue strings from the necklace.

Step 5: Glue your chain to the back of the necklace.

If you’re a visual person like me, here’s my video on YouTube.

Enjoy!
