Easy Valentine's Day Bookmark

This project is an easy one to do for Valentine's Day parties at school or work. I think this would be a perfectly easy project to do with a group of kids.

Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Stamp Set: Happy Heart Day
Accessories: Glue Dots, Glue Stick, Real Red Marker, Pretty in Pink Marker, Tag Punch, Small Tag Punch, Jumbo Paperclip (I bought mine in a package of 15 at Wal-Mart for 97 cents in the office supply section).

Punch two tags with the larger tag punch out of Real Red CS. Use basic black to stamp image onto Whisper White CS. Turn smaller tag punch over so you can see what you are punching and punch out tag image. Use markers to color stamped image. Glue image to one of the Real Red tags. Use glue dots to adhere tags to each other with paperclip in the middle. Be sure to put end of paperclip with 2 loops at the bottom so it can be used as a bookmark! If you glue the wrong end, you will have a pretty paperclip that can't be used! Yes, I know from experience! :)
