bookmark valentines

it's a valentine. it's a bookmark. it's easy...

all you need for supplies are:
card stock, scissors, and glue

cut two hearts to size (one small and one large) then glue them together. when you glue the hearts together, only glue the top of the small heart, so you will have a flap to put over the pages in your book.

and that's it. you heard me, that's it. it's that easy!

you could make a bunch for your kiddo's school valentine's and not waste your entire weekend. or if you don't have kids, you can make one for yourself to enjoy....like me.

to customize them a bit more, you could punch a hole in the top and tie a ribbon to it. glue on some lace, buttons or write sweet things to your valentine...whatever your little hearts desire.

i made the blue and gray one for chris (more manly...even for a heart) and the pink one is for me.

happy crafting ladies.

oh. if you haven't entered my give-away..go here to check it out.

a visit to the minneapolis institute of art

if you are ever in the area...this is a must see. the exhibits are always changing and this trip, they had a large frank lloyd wright exhibit, which chris loved. i enjoyed the african exhibit and modern photography sections. it's always a fun trip for us.
