Craft GIVEAWAY: Creative Teacher Bookmarks

Aug 8, 2014

 It is that time again!!! Yea!!! A Creative Teacher Giveaway!  It is important for teachers to show that creative side (I know, I if we don't in the classroom).  But it is still fun to create something new!

Last time I made handmade-stitched cards.  This time....(drum roll)...BOOKMARKS!  They are super cute ribbon and button bookmarks.  I think they would be perfect for students that are reading chapter books, volunteer gifts, or  just for yourself!  The inspiration came from this photo that I saw on Pinterest (I linked the image to the original source; however, it only takes you to an image):

So I will share with you how I made mine.  Then you can make some too!
Here's what you need to make one:

1. Any kind of ribbon (the length does not need to be exact)
2. Buttons (any kind laying around the house will work)
3. Elastic hair ties (any size will work--I only had the smaller ones)
4. Needle and thread

Here's what I did.
1. I wrapped the ribbon around a book.  I cut it a few inches short of the ends touching each other.
2. I sewed a button to one end of the ribbon.
3. I sewed the other end of the ribbon to the elastic band.

That's it!!  It should look like this:

But WAIT! Before you run off to make can win some that I made :)  Here they are:

All classroom or homeschool teachers in U.S. may enter to win these bookmarks.  If you win, I will email you.  Please respond with your address within 7 days so that you can use them right away! :) Good luck everyone!!
