Okay, I have a confession to make.  While everyone is soaking in the Gossip Girl trend, I’ve been hooked on the Twilight saga.  Yeah, I know it’s a teen book, but I can’t get enough of it.  I’m currently reading ‘Eclipse’.  I definitely recommend the Twilight saga.  Lately, reading has definitely made me feel more productive than watching TV until I fall asleep. 

 Anyways, when I first bought ‘Twilight’, I got the special collector’s edition.  It came with a nice red satin ribbon attached to it as a bookmark.  The other three books didn’t come with the ribbon; which made me feel a little empty.  Lucky for me, I work at M&J Trimming.  So I decided to make my own ribbon bookmark.  However, I also wanted to add a little creativity to this easy project and made it a magnetic bookmark.  Here are the materials and instructions.

Materials:

              

 

Instructions:

  1. Using the scissors, trim the plastic seal around the magnet so that it fits within the 7/8″ ribbon
  2. After you finish trimming it, add a few drops of glue around what’s left of the plastic seal. 
  3. Then place one of the magnets on the back side of the single face satin ribbon.  The magnet should be at the end of the ribbon.
  4. Add glue onto the other side of the plastic seal and fold the ribbon over so that the magnet is cover.  Be careful not to use too much glue.
  5. Now repeat the steps with the other magnet, but on the other end of the ribbon.  After that’s done, let it dry for about 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Once everything is dry, you can add glue to the back of your button and place that over the magnet, but of course on the side where you can’t see the fold of the ribbon.  Repeat this with the other button.
  7. If you’ve chose to use a regular shank button with a flat back, then carefully use the pliers to take off the shank.  Then you can add the glue and place it over the magnet. 
  8. If you don’t want to use buttons, you can also use appliqués. 
  9. Now you’re all done and ready to snap your bookmark in place.
