DIY Valentine Projects -Thumbprint Bookmarks

These are so cute and so easy for some folks on your list, the ones you want to remember with a token but useful gift. They are small enough to tuck into a card, or to give with a book. The tutorial is at this link, by Lila at SweetAndLovelyCrafts.

Her instructions and photos are clear and well-detailed. These are easy enough for those of you who want something the kids can help with. They are easy enough for some craft-challenged grownups, too!

Depending on the colors you use, they work for men, women and kids. Lila shows several different sayings and graphics that you can use, so there's sure to be something for everyone on your list.

This is part of my series (1/15-2/14) of Valentine projects.

This came in one of my daily e-newsletters from CraftGossip.

For other projects in this series, just look along the right sidebar for the label "Valentine Projects." I will post only tips that do not require knitting, crocheting, machine sewing, tatting, embroidery, or any other skilled technique.

If you are feeling lazy, check my Etsy shop for items for your gift list.
