Here is what you will need:
- paper scraps
- embellishments such as buttons and American Crafts Flair buttons
Variation #1 - altered paperclip
Step 1) Place your backing piece (mine is a 1.5 inch scalloped punched circle) right side down on your work surface. Attach a glue dot on the centre. Place a paperclip on top of this. Attach your piece of *flair* (any embellishment will do!).
For the button bookmark place your backing piece (mine is a 1 inch punched circle) right side down on your work surface. Attach a glue dot on the centre. Place paperclip on top of this. Place button on top and hand sew in place.
The star one is made the same way...so fun to present to your *star reader*!
