For classmates valentines this year, Olive made DIY Valentine Bookmarks.
First, we cut some heavy cardstock (green/blue and red) to 2.25″ x 6″ strips. That’s a good, comfortable bookmark size, with plenty of space for decoration. On the back, Olive wrote a to/from note.
Then she went to work glueing, glittering and stickering the fronts.
On some she made a decorative border with an edger hole punch.
Velvet ribbons were attached when the glue was dry. Since our stickers were little word bubbles, on some of the bookmarks, we used the glue to make faces so that they could speak the little Valentine’s messages. So cute!
DIY Valentine bookmarks are sweet and personalized. They make a really good no-candy option, while encouraging reading at the same time.
