Valentine Bookmarks


I made my girls each a Valentine bookmark instead of a card! They both love to read, and I've noticed that they're using scraps of paper to mark their place in their books, so bookmarks were a great idea! I used some paper scraps. I was inspired by the cute American Crafts ribbons that I got at Michael's. I love that the ribbons all had brown in them! I did some stitching on the bookmarks, and I added a Prima, button, and twine. I think these turned out really cute, and the girls loved them!


Here's the backside. Just very plain and simple with a little note from me! I also got them cute keychains with beads and a heart, and on the heart it says, "Live life like it matters!" Words to live by!

Check this out! JenMarie is giving away a NEW {ippity} stamp set! Check out her blog for all of the details! I just placed MY order with JenMarie for a new {ippity} stamp set, and I cannot wait to get it! JenMarie ships VERY quickly, and she's including a sample of My Mind's Eye papers with her orders! She's awesome!

Thanks for stopping by!
