We are feeling a little mushy at Art Kit Factory lately. We are preparing for Valentine's Day! What we love about Valentine's Day is not really the traditional Date Night concept - it's that we get to tell the people around us how much we love them and it's perfectly normal. Expected even! And what better way to do that with some art. First, the time lapse of our family art time to show you how it was done.
So, dear reader, we are sending you a Valentine in advance of February 14th with this free downloadable Doodle Art Bookmark Coloring Page! We'll even tell you how we like to make our bookmarks extra special. We used these supplies that come with our Doodley-Doo Art Kit To Go to color our bookmarks:
To build our bookmarks we used the following supplies:
- Spray Mount (but you could use a glue stick too)
- A hole punch
- A sheet of heavy weight paper or card stock
First, we glued a sheet of red card stock to the back of our sheet of bookmarks. This makes the bookmark sturdier.
Then, we cut out the bookmarks following the dotted line. We didn't worry too much about perfection here - it's nice to show that it was made by hand.
Then we punched a hole about 1/2 inch from the top of the bookmark in the center.
Then we cut a length of yarn about 11 inches long - you can use whatever material you'd like, ribbon, yarn, string...
