How to Make Covered Button Bookmarks

These covered button bookmarks are super simple to make!

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.

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she retains the plan of a user in his/her brain that how
    a user can know it. Therefore that's why
    this piece of writing is outstdanding. Thanks!
