As I was doing my daily blog reading, I came upon a post at Good Life Eats about DIY bookmarks that she had been eying up. I immediately fell in love with the corner heart bookmarks over at Craft and Creativity and set to work immediately. I had free time since I only have class at 4 on Thursdays, so this was one of those things that I just jumped on. I had all the supplies, and it looked super easy and cute.
First, fold the sheet of copy paper in half diagonally. Draw an arc in the corner of the paper to create the heart. Cut out the arc and unfold. You now have your pattern to trace.
Trace the pattern lightly onto the corners of the envelopes with a pencil.
Cut out the hearts, and erase any pencil marks.
Take the sheet of copy paper, unfold it, and refold it in half diagonally so you have a corner that has not yet been cut. Fold the pattern you already made and trace it in the corner of the copy paper. Remove the pattern and draw another arc below the line that you traced, for the smaller heart for your design. Cut it out for the pattern of your smaller heart.
Trace the smaller heart onto your book page/scrapbook paper with a pencil, and cut out the traced heart.
Erase any pencil marks left behind. Glue the small hearts onto the big hearts and allow to dry.
