I decided to use the Papertrey challenge today, which was to make an origami project, to make my girls a simple Valentine's bookmark. This was so quick and easy. I followed this tutorial from the Origami Club website.
Raspberry Fizz Mix. I stamped the "love" from Mixed Messages and the "you" from First Fruits on the heart then inked the edges with raspberry fizz ink. I then added the swirls from Remember in black ink.
I wanted to keep the bookmark flat so they could actually use it in their books. I resisted the urge to add a cute bow with some yummy PTI ribbon. Instead I punched the bottom of the bookmark with a scalloped border punch to dress it up a bit. I love how the point of the heart can hook over the edge of the page to mark your place in the book.
