Valentine's Corner Bookmarks


Can you believe it is February already? Glad I got a jump start on making some Valentine's Day gifts. I made a set of corner bookmarks for my students and for my son's classmates. He picked up some paper last week to make some for his teachers--a pack of the MME 6x6.

Here are a couple of up close and personal pics of the boy and girl reading. They are from the A Child's Year cartridge. I cut the top layer and put it through the cuttlebug then inked and spritzed it with Glimmer Mist.The border punch on this one is from Recollections.


The Spellbinder Lacey Circle anchors the image. I used my Sakura black gel pen to stitch an outline. On this one I actually inked around the circle prior to removing it from the die. I cut the bottom using the Scalloped Spellbinder heart.

The bookmark itself is cut from an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper to measure 4  1/2 x 4  1/2. The leftover 2 inch strip is what I used to emboss the hearts border (cut down to one inch). Waste not want not.

I cut the initials using the Zooballoo font and placed them inside a heart from the Love Struck cart. I stamped the paper using a candies heart rubber stamp. You can find all of the complete information on the YouTube Vee-dio.

I truly enjoyed making these for my students and my son's classmates. I know that they will enjoy having their own personalized bookmark and lucky for me that the two kids with the same initials were a boy and a girl. No way to confuse those bookmarks. LOL

It's not too late to crank out a set for your co-workers or for your own family. Give those folks with a Nook or Kindle something to envy!!!
Until then.
