Sticky Mud and Belly Laughs

Valentine’s Day Photo Bookmark Craft

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.

*We were sent some awesome crafty bits as we are part of the #Bostikblogger squad, some of which were used within this post*

Like me? Then why not pin for later?

    Hi Jayne, shop bought Valentines stuff is not only expensive it’s a little ‘the same as’. Little handmade gifts are so much nicer. Your bookmark idea is very nice.
