Use your Cricut to make a batch in no time.  Since the machine does most of the work, you can cozy up with a blanket and your own book while it cuts.

Don’t have a Cricut machine yet?  No worries, you can make these printable Valentine coloring bookmarks in the meantime.

You will need:

To make the Valentine Bookmark:

Extra Materials needed:

Liquid glue with fine tip nozzle
Lamination machine and sheets (optional)
coordinating ribbon or twine

  1. Glue top design layer to bottom solid layer, lining up holes in top of bookmark. I prefer Beacon Zip Dry Paper Glue for this type of project.  The fine tip and fast dry time make it perfect for the thin cut lines and bulk assembly.
  2. (Optional) Laminate for extra strength then punch through top hole.
  3. Tie coordinating ribbon through hole.

    How do you make the ‘i heart this book’ part?

    1. Vicki,
      That part of the design is a layer in the file. You can cut both parts in your cutting program at the same time, or just that top layer.

  3. Hi
    I’m trying to save the file, but it’s saving as svg.xml file

    1. Hi G,
      SVG is a type of xml based file, but I’m not quite sure why the file is converting to xml for you. It’s definitely an SVG file. Can you tell me more about how you’re saving the file? Are you saving to your computer before opening in your cutting system software?
