This a great quick, easy project! It would make a great little Christmas gift or hostess gift (for a hostess who likes to read, at least.) if you bought a journal and made a ribbon bookmark to match. I spotted this on Pinterest in the DIY/crafts section (and quickly repinned it J). I won’t go into too much detail with the how-to because Percolating Projects has a reallynice tutorial, so click on the link for the step by step!
All you need are buttons, ribbons, and hair elastics (which I usually just call "hair things" but let us be fancy for the blog). The only thing I did differently was use my hot glue gun for everything except sewing on the button, which I did by hand. I just didn’t feel like getting out my machine for a few bookmarks (Crafter’s Lethargy takes another victim!) I made one for my journal, my Bible, and my slightly smaller Bible.
Of course, now that I have my beloved Kindle I don’t have as much need for bookmarks…but I’m not completely electronic yet, and probably never will be.
