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 this bookmark with my fellow book-lovers in mind. Plus, see all of my free Printable Bookmarks to Color for other holidays or everyday fun.

Make a Heart Bookmark for Yourself

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.

Supplies for Foiled Bookmark:

To Make a Gold Foil Bookmark

To add shiny foil to the bookmark, print the file using a laser printer, or use a photocopy of the art. Apply the gold foil using the Minc machine. Then use a 3/4″ brush to apply a watercolor wash over the top.  

Mat the bookmark on coordinating paper. Laminate or seal if desired, and punch a hole near the top of your bookmark to tie a bit of pretty ribbon.

  1. These either print so enormous (3 pages huge) or are so fuzzy unclear, my first graders wouldn’t discern the lines. Not happy… a lot of effort to “sign up” for it he results to be so disappointing

    1. Hi Kathy,

      I’m sorry you’re having trouble with the file, let me address both your concerns. The bookmarks should print clearly one one page. Did you use the download button at the bottom of the post to save to your computer before printing? You may be experiencing problems if you’re trying to print directly from the low-resolution image of the page. If you’re having problems printing from the downloaded file, please contact me and I can help you further.

      You never have to sign up for anything to access my free printables, they all have a download button at the bottom of the associated post to save the file to your computer. The only sign up form on my site is to subscribe to my newsletter for those interested in following me via email.


  2. I work for a public library would it be okay to print thsee out and leave on a table for kids on Valentines day?

    1. Hi Liz,

      Absolutely, I love the idea! The only thing I don’t allow is resale for profit. I hope the kids have fun with them!


      1. Great! Thank you so much! 🙂

  3. Bonnie Banejmain says:

    These will be perfect gift at our Community Meal ! Something to do for those who wish to be creative and they go home with inspirational words on the back

  4. Carla Tyler says:

    This is exactly what I need. Thank you so very much .

  5. Super ! Thanks :)it’s a wonderful idea !

  6. These are so cute! I am going to use them for a Valentine’s Party for my daughter’s Girl Club. Thank you 🙂

  7. Hi Carla,
    About what Kathy posted on 1/21/17, I do Pinterest from my iphone when I am not near a PC. I experienced similar issues as Kathy because I don’t know where to find the file on my phone after I downloaded it. Truly operator error–my phone is smarter than I am! So I tried printing from the small image I had saved to my phone…
    Some sites allow you to open a PDF of the bookmark file and I then click to open in Safari, and click to open in my PDF reader where the bookmarks print beautifully! Just a thought if you want to help tech-challenged people… 😉

  17. Hello! Are we allowed to send the file to Staples or a similar store, to pay for them to print the bookmarks? They would technically be making profit from that. Can you please confirm permission to pay Staples or a similar office supply store to print these bookmarks?

    Thank you!

    1. You can have them printed anywhere you like, just not resell the files or finished projects. I hope that clarifies. Enjoy!

  18. Thank YOU, I needed a new bookmark! I love the gold ones. I will trace with a embossing pen and then emboss them…no mint here…hope it works!

  19. Thank you – very cute! I am going to make myself some bookmarks with these printed out on coloured paper. Will just stick onto cardboard with a ribbon or tassle.

  20. Thank you so much for these. I’m going to make some for my dd’s. Have a happy day!

  21. Thank you for making the template available! I made the bookmarks.

  22. Going to have this as an activity for the residents at the nursing home where I work in the Activity Dept. They will enjoy this. Thanks for the down load!

    1. Hi Linda, After you enter your email, you should be able to use the "download" button in the email popup to save the bookmarks to your device.
