Quick & easy Valentine bookmark

Posted by on 2/13/2012 to Ideas & Inspiration
Who needs a quick, easy, personally made token of affection to give on Valentine's Day? Or simply an alternative to the traditional Valentine's card?

Well, here is a great idea for something that will last much longer than a card. This adorable bookmark will remind your loved one of you every time they read a book.

All you need are some paint colour cards (hues of reds and pinks will of course work especially well for 14 February), some thin ribbon and a heart shaped hole punch.

Carefully glue two colour strips together so that the colours face outwards on both sides. This makes for a stronger, double-sided bookmark.

Use the punch to make a heart shape on every colour band. Then punch another hole at the top of the card and thread a piece of pretty ribbon through it.

Et voila! One bookmark ready to go!

Have fun making these with the kids so that they have a great little gift to give to other members of the family.

If you make these Valentine bookmarks or create your own variations send us a link to a photo. We'd love to see your creativity.
