Let’s hear it for love…of books! There’s nothing better than curling up under a snuggly blanket with a nice thick book. Of course, I love little books and somewhere-in-the-middle books too. And even though e-readers are convenient, there’s just something about flipping through well-loved pages that makes my heart happy.
I designed printable Valentine heart bookmarks to share with you, my fellow bookworms, filled with hearts to color. Use your favorite supplies to color one for yourself, or print a bunch to use as kid class valentines. Download the printable bookmarks after the tutorial. If you have a cutting machine, make sure you also grab my free Valentine bookmark svg file.
Make a Heart Bookmark for Yourself
Replace those old Target receipts, losing lottery tickets, and torn up envelopes! Make a pretty new bookmark that indulges your love of crafting and your love of reading. A double win! Print on heavy cardstock or watercolor paper that will stand up to your coloring tools of choice. Color with crayons, colored pencils, markers, watercolors, or whatever suits your fancy.
Optional: for extra shine, print using a laser printer and add foil using a foiling machine. I used the Minc machine and gold foil, then used a 3/4″ brush to watercolor over the top. Laminate or seal if desired, and punch a hole near the top of your bookmark to tie a bit of ribbon.
Supplies for foiled bookmark:
- Watercolor paper
- Watercolors and brush
- laser printer (or photocopy of printables-not inkjet printed for foiled bookmark)
- Minc machine and gold foil
- Coordinating Ribbon and card stock
Valentine Heart Bookmarks for Kids
Skip the store and make Valentine heart bookmarks to pass out at school too. For class valentines for kids to color, print bookmarks onto heavy white card stock, cut out, and glue onto a 2 x 6.5″ colorful red cardstock background. Punch a hole near the top and tie a ribbon through hole.
