Valentine’s Bookmarks Download


Still not indestructible in spite of the wonderful soup. However, I’m feeling more human and I’ve been procrastinating using some paints and doodling with Valentine’s Day on my mind. And what do I like to do when I have a bunch of sketches? Make bookmarks, of course. How are these different from the tags I’ve made before, you may ask? They’re not, but I thought they would sound fancier as bookmarks. They’re multi-purpose (case in point: K insisted on wearing one as a necklace)! Plus, maybe you’re not as scatter-brained as we are, but we’re always losing bookmarks around here — which is very inconvenient in a book-obsessed home — so it’s handy to have multiples.


This one’s my favorite, mainly because I love the wreath with the leaf ribbon. I’m also pretty darn smitten with all the food ones. I know, I know, watermelons are so not Valentine’s, but they’re fun to paint. And who can resist a little e. e. cummings? Just for kicks, I tried out different ribbons and leather cords:


I hope you like them! There are even more designs/colorways. You can see the full sheet below, and if you click on the image, you can download the tags. Oops, I mean bookmarks.

P.S. The book up there is Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, and so far, it’s awesome.

    These tags are so so sweet. Oops I mean these bookmarks are so so sweet, especially the flower wreath. But I’ll get them all :p Thank you for these little sweeties.
    Actually K’s idea of necklace is do-able. Do you know the type of thin transparent plastic board where you can paint on it then heat it? The piece will get smaller, thicker and harder. Maybe you can give it a try? :D

  2. sooooo sweet and pretty. i love your designs! i’ve been working on my SV goodies for the last few days in little spurts. i hope to get it all sent off by friday to allow for shipping delays- there always seems to be something! it’s been super fun, but silly me, i was having some major self esteem issues this morning- my fabric always seems to get a little lumpy at the seams and I’m just too amateur to figure it out. (sigh…) i had a good pep talk with myself to remember that this is for FUN, and i shouldn’t fret over such trivialities. it’s all good now and I’m feeling the love for my project again. phew….

    • I had to get over a few moments like this also! There are a few places where I could have ripped the seams and redone them, but I just took a deep breath and decided I can live with these imperfections! I think Sanae´s bookmarks are great for a little pep talk – I will definitely print them out for myself, too! :-)

  3. You are so sweet! Thank you!! Just a shame I already sent my Valentine off… otherwise I would have used those also! But I will find many more uses!
