Monogram Bookmark

If you're an early bird, plan-ahead kind of girl just like me (ha--yeah right), and thinking about Christmas gifts, here's a sweet idea for the kids' teachers or a girlfriend who likes to read.

Make a lovely, personalized bookmark.

If you are giving a book or journal, wrap it up in brown craft paper and attach the bookmark to the front in place of a bow. How cute is that?

Or slip it into a birthday card, which is what I did.

  1. Glue scrapbook embellishments to the front of a large button. 
  2. Cut several pieces of ribbon the same length and glue to the back of the button.
  3. Seal the ribbon edges with an open flame (lighter) to prevent fraying.

Join  us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap    up           party!

  1. Love it! What a great idea for Carter's Sunday School and AWANA teachers--I can make a bunch of these quickly and at low cost! I wish I'd seen this post before I made 30 fabric flowers. This would have been a great, quick shower favor for a party I'm hosting in May! Thanks for the inspiration, Erin!
