Magazine Page Markers

Posted on March 27, 2013
Hi, Everybody! I hope your week is going well so far! Our week here in Maryland started off with a snowstorm that left a couple of inches of snow on the ground and turned everything into a “winter” wonderland! I don’t think I remember it ever being so cold and snowy at this time of year, and definitely not at Easter time! It seems like spring keeps teasing us with its arrival, but winter continues to linger on. I have a really easy little craft to share with you today – these cute little Magazine Page Markers! I have always loved magazines, especially home decor, fashion and cooking ones, and there’s nothing I’d rather do on a cold snowy afternoon than sit on our couch with a fuzzy blanket, reading magazines and drinking tea! I always look forward to my Martha Stewart Living magazine waiting for me in our mailbox at the beginning of each month, and I have stacks and stacks of magazines that contain hundreds of recipes and ideas that I want to try out! The problem is that I can never seem to remember what magazine a certain recipe was in, and then end up spending hours looking for it. So I made these little button paper clip page markers to save all the good ideas I want to try! To make them, just attach the buttons to the ends of the paperclips using hot glue, and use different colors for each topic (recipes, craft ideas, and so on). So easy and very helpful!

Have a great rest of the week, Everyone!

    Great idea! I’m always thinking I’ll remember a certain recipe or idea and then I don’t. I need to make some of these with the many bottles of buttons that I have in my craft room.

    Are those the bigger kind of paper clips?
    Love the idea!

      I used medium sized paper clips but the big ones would work too!

    I would love to use these with bigger paper clips for bookmarks for my students!
