14 Days of Valentines: Day 12 Paper Heart Bookmark

It's day 12 of 13 Days of Valentines, my attempt at one Valentine's inspired craft each day.


The hubs and I both share the reading bug and we NEVER have a dedicated bookmark to save our spots.  (We're not really corner folders...we love our books too much.)  I've found myself using the closest thing I can find to save my page...like an Amazon gift card, someone's business card, a stray piece of paper, or a tissue (clean, of course!)

Well, not anymore!  We've got our very own set of colorful heart shaped corner bookmarks.






And here's how I made them:

Supplies:
  • Paper
  • Sewing Machine (or you could just use glue)
Make a heart shaped template by cutting off a triangle at the corner of a piece of paper.  Fold it in half and round off the edge.



Use this template to cut out two pieces of paper hearts.  Next, join both pieces by sewing along the straight edges.  Seriously, that's it.  Super easy.  (Oh, like my "straight" sewing job.  Yeah, I'm notorious.)

Now, get to reading!


Day 12 down, 2 to go!
