The other day I came across this wonderful idea for making ribbon and button bookmarks. Sarah Jane from The Fruit Pixie had sent me some of her Disney buttons a while ago to make some projects for her. As soon as I saw the ribbon bookmark idea I knew what I was going to make with them.
The examples of the bookmarks I found were made using plain buttons but I used the Disney buttons instead!
I also had some of the beautiful vintage glass buttons that you can also find in the button section and so used one of those to make a bookmark using a piece of embroidered ribbon I had bought many years ago in Austria.
There wasn’t much left but just enough for a bookmark
This is a great project for using a special pieces of ribbon or off cuts from other projects
I think they would make great back to school gifts perhaps for the bookworm in your family.
Of course they don’t have to just be for keeping your place in your novels. They are great for your journal, favourite recipes in your cook books
or keeping your page in a text books too.
All you need is a piece of ribbon, hairband to match your ribbon, a Disney button and a needle and thread!
You can find these buttons in The Fruit Pixie online shop here -
