    Start buy gluing your hair elastic to the ribbon. About 1 inch from the end,=.

    If it has a connector bit, like mine in the picture, you want to cover that part with the ribbon.

    To find out how much ribbon you'll need, open the book, place the ribbon midway through the book, close it, put the elastic around the tip of a pencil/pen and stretch the elastic up to the other end of the ribbon and make a mark where the button should go.

    You want to find a good spot for the button, don't make your elastic stretch too much that it is hard to stretch, but you don't want it too loose that it might fall out.
