Let’s hear it for love…of books!  There’s nothing better than curling up under a snuggly blanket with a nice thick book.  Of course, I love little books and somewhere-in-the-middle books too.  And even though e-readers are convenient, there’s just something about flipping through well-loved pages that makes my heart happy.

I designed printable Valentine heart bookmarks to share with you, my fellow bookworms, filled with hearts to color.  Use your favorite supplies to color one for yourself, or print a bunch to use as kid class valentines.  Download the printable bookmarks after the tutorial.

Make a Heart Bookmark for Yourself

Print on heavy cardstock or watercolor paper that will stand up to your coloring tools of choice.  Color with crayons, colored pencils, markers, watercolors, or whatever suits your fancy.

Optional: for extra shine, print using a laser printer and add foil using a foiling machine.  I used the Minc machine and gold foil, then used a 3/4″ brush to watercolor over the top.   Laminate or seal if desired, and punch a hole near the top of your bookmark to tie a bit of ribbon.

Valentine Heart Bookmarks for Kids

Skip the store and make Valentine heart bookmarks to pass out at school too. For class valentines for kids to color, print bookmarks onto heavy white paper, cut out, and glue onto a 2 x 6.5″ colorful cardstock background.  Punch a hole near the top and tie a ribbon through hole.

  1. These either print so enormous (3 pages huge) or are so fuzzy unclear, my first graders wouldn’t discern the lines. Not happy… a lot of effort to “sign up” for it he results to be so disappointing

    • Hi Kathy,

      I’m sorry you’re having trouble with the file, let me address both your concerns. The bookmarks should print clearly one one page. Did you use the download button at the bottom of the post to save to your computer before printing? You may be experiencing problems if you’re trying to print directly from the low-resolution image of the page. If you’re having problems printing from the downloaded file, please contact me and I can help you further.

      You never have to sign up for anything to access my free printables, they all have a download button at the bottom of the associated post to save the file to your computer. The only sign up form on my site is to subscribe to my newsletter for those interested in following me via email.


  2. These will be perfect gift at our Community Meal ! Something to do for those who wish to be creative and they go home with inspirational words on the back

  3. Hi Carla,
    About what Kathy posted on 1/21/17, I do Pinterest from my iphone when I am not near a PC. I experienced similar issues as Kathy because I don’t know where to find the file on my phone after I downloaded it. Truly operator error–my phone is smarter than I am! So I tried printing from the small image I had saved to my phone…
    Some sites allow you to open a PDF of the bookmark file and I then click to open in Safari, and click to open in my PDF reader where the bookmarks print beautifully! Just a thought if you want to help tech-challenged people… 😉

  4. The link isn’t working for me either. 🙁 I would love to be able to download these for my students to color next week. Please help!

  5. Sorry about that everyone, I updated a few things on the admin side this morning and missed an issue with the download program I use. It’s all fixed now, and should download properly. Thanks for your patience!

  6. Thank you. I used the printable bookmarks for my Sunday school this year for Valentines day. The kids love it.

    God bless


  7. Hello! Are we allowed to send the file to Staples or a similar store, to pay for them to print the bookmarks? They would technically be making profit from that. Can you please confirm permission to pay Staples or a similar office supply store to print these bookmarks?

    Thank you!
