I attended a craft event recently where I made these fun button paper clip bookmarks. The possibilities are endless when you layer buttons with embellishments to create unique designs and color combinations. The cost averaged out to around $0.50 per bookmark, making them an affordable DIY gift idea.
All you’ll need are paper clips, assorted buttons with shanks, small pieces of felt fabric, and a hot glue gun. Thread the shank around the paper clip so the button sits at the top of the clip and apply hot glue. If your button is missing a shank, glue the back to the top of the clip then glue a small piece of felt fabric over the backing to secure.
