No Slip Bookmark Tutorial

I have so many books requested at the library right now! I love books they may be my favorite thing, but bookmarks I have an issue with.  I've always been a dog ear person (you know, folding down the top corner of the page to mark my spot).  Bookmarks always fall out then I have no clue where I was.  But I don't like to dog ear books that don't belong to me (or even some that do).  I'm sure you've seen this idea around, I would give credit for the idea, but I've seen it to many places to know who to give credit to! Anywho- in case you haven't....
I love it because it fits all different size books.
Sew a length of ribbon around a hair tie, attach a button on the other end (I gathered the ribbon under the button for interest) and your set!
Happy Reading!

  4. LOVE this idea! I have never seen it either. I have two little helpers that like to "read" my books and lose my place, this might be a perfect solution. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I haven't seen that either! How cute. I'll have to make some! I absolutely HATE dog eared books. It drives me crazy to get a book from the library that has been dog eared.

  8. I've never seen them before, either, so thanks for posting! I love books, too, and never seem to have a bookmark when I need one. I tend to turn my books upside down, which drives my husband crazy. :) He insists I'm cracking the bindings.

  30. Blingchic,
    the email address you left is getting kicked back at me, so hopefully you see this here! The ribbons I used were scraps but I would say ten inches would be pretty universal :)

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been
    using WordPress on various websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way
    I can import all my wordpress posts into
    it? Any help would be really appreciated!
