    You don’t need many supplies! Grab some fabric scraps, a covered button kit, some blank bookmark clips (found at a craft store), glue gun and needle nose pliers.

    To make this craft really easy make sure you get a covered button kit that requires no tools. The button front and back snaps together instead of needing a hammer.  These kits can be found at a fabric or craft store.

    Remove the shank (metal piece inside of the top button piece) with needle nose pliers.
