Directions[edit | edit source]
1) Create two heart templates. One should be the size you want the bookmark and the other should be about 80% of the size of the first heart. 2) Trace your hearts on the card stock and the decorative paper. The card stock will be the larger, back heart. 3) Glue the smaller heart onto the larger heart and allow to dry. 4) Trace the bottom half of the smaller heart with the utility knife and cut all the way through both layers. Make sure to cut on a surface that will not be ruined, like cardboard or an old magazine. 5) Finally slip the pages of your book through the bottom of the heart and enjoy!
