DIRECTIONS: 
Silver Glitter Bookmark:
1.    Wrap elastic around your book so that it is snug, but not overly stretched. It should not be loose. Pin it and remove. Add 1 ¾” to this length and cut the elastic.
2.    Set your machine to a short and narrow zigzag stitch. Stitch the elastic right sides together with a 3/4” seam allowance.
3.    Trim one seam allowance edge to 1/4”. Fold the other seam allowance edge around the shorter one and pin.
4.    Zigzag the elastic, catching the folded edge of the seam allowance.
5.    Stitch the larger of the two buttons to the right side of the elastic, centered over the stitched seam. It will cover the stitching.
6.    Stitch the smaller of the two buttons centered over the first. Use only two of the button holes to stitch through the larger button and elastic to secure.
