Are you tired of always losing the page you are on in the book you are reading because the bookmark always falls out then take a look at this super great idea for one and it is so cheap and simple to make. A button and some scrap fabric. I am in a book club and I am going to make some for gifs for alot of readers I know and my grandkids for summer reading.

I love this. It's a five-minute fabulous and frugal fashionable gift to make for so many people. I want to make a bunch of these. Hold on I have to get hair elastics first. I like how it can hold a book shut for those windy days outdoors, and it makes an excellent bookmark.

This is definitely 5 stars worthy. I made one and a friend stole it...sneak thief! I'll be making more.

I don't think I've ever seen a bookmark like this one before! I like how it kind of makes the bookmark a piece of decoration and you can make it in a fun print. Plus, this guarantees that your bookmark will never fall out and become lost.
