Valentine Bookmark

Here's a cute and quick Valentine craft for you last minute romancers.

You need:
You'll need scissor too if you don't have
electronic cutter~
Steps:
1) Using up your bits and pieces of scrap papers to cut out some hearts.  Mine would fit in a square that measures around 2.75" (7cm) for the large one and 2 1/8" (5.5cm) for the small ones.  This is not exact, just play it by ear.

2) Embellish your hearts by edging them with in, try different colours to get different effects~

  
3) Add some Glimmer Mist if want a little extra shimmer.
Make sure you have lots of covereage when your spritz
or everything nearby will be covered in Glimmer Mist.
4) Once you've matched up your hearts and decided which ones will go together, turn over the small heart and add some glue along the top edge.


5) Adhere to the inside of the large heart.


And that's it!  Easy peasy!
Yummm, they almost look like pretty sugar cookies!
If you're really romantic (and organized), you could write a little love note on the small heart.

Antony & Cleopatra-the greatest love story of all time~
Make lots for your kids to hand out to their friends.  If you don't do all of the embellishing and have an electronic cutter, this will take you no time at all to make loads.
