Valentines Day Cards for the Bookish


Happy Valentine's Day!

This past weekend several crafting friends met here in St. Louis for a fun filled day of crafting. Both for ourselves and for others. We made magnetic bookmarks that will be donated with books to a local counseling center and food pantry. Then a few ladies made bookmarks for their children's Valentines Day and I thought it was a great idea!

So Sunday my daughter and I made these magnetic bookmarks together for her Valentines swap at school. Then we brainstormed and came up with a pun for the inside of the card. She chose the ribbon 'Live, Laugh, Love' from AllAboutRibbon.com and we put it on hot pink for the girls and lime green for the boys. What a fun, inexpensive, useful swap that won't cause a sugar high or cavities!

Happy Valentines Day!
