With Valentine’s Day becoming increasingly more commercialised, it’s nice to go back to basics and prove that you don’t need to spend loads of money on gifts. A little handmade gift from the kiddies is worth a billion times more than something purchased. So why not make your own Valentine’s gift, like we have.
What you will need
Craft knife & mat
Laminator & pouches
1 First cut out your bookmark shape from card, using a craft knife and mat. This one is roughly 16cm x 5cm. It’s up to you what size you would like your frames to be, mine are roughly 35mm square.
2 Jayden then picked out some pictures he would like to use on the bookmark, and we printed them off. Jayden typed out the little message on the mac, as I think you would struggle to fit a little one’s handwriting in such a small space. We used a kiddy like font, to give the same effect.
3 I then cut a heart shape out of some pretty decorative paper and stuck it to the bookmark.
4 Afterwards, I cut a strip of coloured card to stick to the rear, just to tidy it up and to give it a bit of support.
5 Finally, I popped it into a lamination pouch and ran it through the laminator. When it was done I trimmed it up.
And there you have it! Simples.

Like me? Then why not pin for later?
