The Christmas season will be here before you know it. Dad always says on the Fourth of July, " Before you know it, it will be Christmas Eve!" He is right! I start thinking about Christmas gifts in January after the previous Christmas season is over.
In the newspaper the other week, there was an article about this woman who collected vintage buttons. One thing she did with these buttons was make them into bookmarkers by sewing a button onto a length of ribbon. They looked really cute! All you do is find a piece of ribbon that is long enough to stay in a book, apply Fray Check® to both ends, and sew on a coordinating button (vintage or new). This craft is easy enough for children to make with a little assistance. Children could give them as Christmas gifts or you could slip one in a book that you are giving as a gift. I am sure that they also look nice in your own books!
