Felt & Ribbon Bookmark

Gabrielle’s dance recital was this weekend.  Sébastien and I wanted to get her something special for the occasion.  Gabrielle LOVES books so we decided to pick her up a little set of chapter books.
I was just about to wrap the books when I realized it was missing something… something personalized.
This is what I created to accompany the books.
A cute bookmark made with felt, ribbon and buttons.  
What do you think?
Would you like to make one too?
– Felt
– Ribbon
– Embroidery Thread
– Buttons
– Paper
– Scissors
– Needle
– Glue gun
Step #1 (optional):
Take out the book you are offering as a gift and take out supplies that compliment the colors of the book’s cover.

Step #2:
Take out your piece of paper.  Cut out a large and small circle.
Step #3:
Place the large circle on one of your pieces of felt. Cut around the paper circle to create a felt circle.
Step #4:
Once you have your large circle, thread some embroidery thread around it. (This is for decoration)
Step #5:
Place your small paper circle on a different piece of felt and cut out the circle.
Step #6
Sew the little felt circle onto the large felt circle with some embroidery thread.
Step #7:
Cut the ribbon the length you want it and place it underneath your large felt circle.  Place a button on the top of your little circle and sew the button and ribbon onto the felt circles.
Step #8:
Repeat all of the above steps to create the other end of your bookmark.
Step #9:
Cut two squares pieces of felt. (Make sure they are bigger than your big circle)
Step #10:
Use your glue gun to glue the felt circles onto the square pieces of felt.

Step #11:
Cut around the large circle. (Your square felt will turn into a matching circle)
Step #12:
Enjoy the beautiful bookmark! 🙂

Have a GREAT day!!
P.S.  I’ll be linking this project to these Parties.
