Heart Corner Bookmarks

Heart Corner Bookmarks

This year, I was looking to make some heart corner bookmarks for Valentine’s Day and found so many different ways to fold them that I had to try them all. And of course, give them my own cute design.

This one is probably the most difficult folding technique, but if your kids are into origami; then, they will end up loving them. Once they understand the process, they won’t stop making heart bookmarks.

If you want to learn about the other folding methods, I linked them at the end of this post. I’m sure you’ll like all the adorable designs.

For these bookmarks, I decided to start with something that reminds me purely of Valentine’s Day, and that is conversation hearts!

These colorful hearts are the perfect gift for classmates and friends on this special occasion and include a little note that will make them smile.

You can use this tutorial to make your own heart designs or replicate our cute conversation hearts by getting the printable templates.
