We took their project and tutorial and altered it by making our hearts out of cardstock instead of foam sheets and we glued mini pompoms to the front of the hearts. If you search “valentine bookmark” in Cricut Access you will find this project.
Valentine Bookmark Supplies
- cardstock paper in pink, purple, red, or any colors you like – you only need 2 colors
- ribbon – thicker ribbon works best and the length depends on the size of book you plan to use it in but 12-18 inches works well
- Cricut cutting machine
- glue stick and a glue gun
- LightGrip Machine Mat
- mini pom poms
You can truly use any paper colors you’d like if you would like more variety for your valentine bookmark– this project is found in the DesignSpace of Cricut. The project is called heart bookmark and will cut out these heart shapes on your cardstock. I used the fine point cutting blade and used the standard grip sheet (light would definitely suffice). This Valentine Bookmark will become a new project favorite because it turns out SO CUTE and gives a creative spin to what can be made for Valentine’s Day. Every detail you need to do this cut out design is also in the DesignSpace project description. To go to DesignSpace go here.
How to make Valentine’s Day Bookmarks

- Follow the prompts, place your paper on the mat and load the mat to cut all the pieces and parts to make your heart cutouts.
- Once all your pieces are cut assemble them by glueing the smaller hearts over the larger hearts.
- Glue the end of the ribbon to the back of the glued together hearts then sandwich the ribbon with another heart pair that is set with glue. Do this on both ends of your ribbon.
