How to make it

  • Cut ribbon into 50cm long strips. You may have to adjust this based on how big your book is!
  • Place hair elastic at the end of the ribbon, and fold over about 1-2cm of ribbon.
  • Ask mum or dad to sew the edge of the ribbon to secure the elastic in place.
  • Ask mum or dad to sew the button on to the other end of the ribbon.
