Valentine’s Day Bookmarks w/ Printables

14 Feb

Valentine’s Day is almost here and since lil man goes to school on Mondays, Valentine’s Day cards are a necessity this year.  I decided to skip the store bought variety and I didn’t want to go the food route b/c of allergy issues, so I created custom bookmarks (perfect for school!).  I downloaded the animal images from iStockPhoto.com and created four designs in Adobe Illustrator, but you could also use PowerPoint, Publisher or any word processing software.

Once I had the design created and printed, I gathered my supplies:

  • Laminating sheets
  • Red & white yarn
  • Scissors (note, I originally used a paper cutter, but scissors were easier on the laminated paper)
  • Hole puncher
  • Corner punch

I started by laminating the printed sheets–each sheet had four bookmarks on it.  Then I cut out the individual bookmarks, rounded the corners and punched a hole to tie the yarn through.  A couple photos of the finished product:

The messages are:

Lion: Have a roaring Valentine’s Day!  Love, Evan

Elephant: Don’t forget to be my Valentine.  Love, Evan

Ladybug: Will you be my love bug? Happy V-Day!  Love, Evan

Giraffe: Gee, You’re Cute! Happy V-Day! Love, Evan

Font is Actionls (downloaded for free from dafont.com).

Here are the templates with my son’s name removed so you can print and sign your child(ren’s) name.
