I have been reading some excellent books this summer. A few of my favorites so far are The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, Julie & Julia, Fast Food Nation and The Omnivores Dilemma. I always bring my book-of-the-moment to the beach and when the wind starts whipping off the water…well, there goes my page. So I decided to craft some simple and sweet little page markers.
Step One: Round up a few pretty buttons, a couple paper clips, some matching ribbon and thread (thin wire or stretchy jewelry cord works well too!)Step Two: Thread a needle with your cord/wire/thread and make a few loops through the button hole. Tie off your thread in the back and then insert your paper clip through the loops. Tie on your matching ribbon and hide your knot behind the button. For extra staying-power, but a dab of hot glue on the button and press the paper clip and ribbon on.Now off you go to do some beach reading, without worrying about losing your page!
