Button bookmark: step-by-step instructions

Μaria Chatzi shares with us step-by-step instructions to create the button bookmark. Inspired by the fairy-tale "The top button".

What about the materials?

- pencil
- a small piece of paper (about the size of your palm)
- coloring pencils and markers (or, alternatively, a sheet of A4 paper and your printer)
- 4 buttons in various colors, not large ones and they don’t need to be all of the same size
- a strip of canson type paper, color: dark blue, dimensions: 8.27 inches x 2.17 inches
- glue
- scissors

- ruler


1. Draw and color Brighty, the top button (or print picture Nr. 1).  Cut out the drawing. 
2. Glue Brighty first, on the upper part of your bookmark. 

3. Glue the rest of the buttons (in a column) right below Brighty, leaving some space between them, as shown in picture Nr. 2
