Buttons + Paperclips = Bookmarks!

Another straight forward tutorial. This one by Jamielyn, from I { heart } Nap Time, it's the kind of blog worth coming back to at least once a week!

After I had a go with the cute monster bookmark, I will definitely make a few of these. They will come very handy if you're doing a course and need to mark several pages on the same book or notepad.

The idea is simple: button, paperclips, glue and felt to give it a nice, smooth finish. Jamielyn uses a hot glue gun, but I am sure you can use normal crafts glue or mod podge. Just make sure you leave enough time for it to dry.
