Tutorial Thursdays - Valentines' Take 2

Wow, Thursday is already here again!

Lets get our craft on!!

Today I am going to show you how to create this quick and simple Valentines' Day book mark.

For this craft you will need:

A Serviette with a motif that you would like to use
A Charm of somesort (Preferably "hearty ;))
A piece of ribbon
Design Freezer* (A lack that can stiffen absorbent materials)
A Piece of White card

Begin by cutting your serviette to the right size.

Place the serviette (do not remove any of the back layers) on a smooth plastic folder and using Design Freezer diluted 1:1 with water, apply to the top of the serviette with a sponge. Be careful to not tear the serviette.

Allow to dry. 

 Whilst the serviette is drying, thread your ribbon through the charm and cut it to size. 

 Once your serviette is dry, cut a piece of white card to fit the back of the motif (it should be able to be folded in half)
Fold the card in half.

 Glue the ribbon on the inside of the card, with the charm hanging outside.

Once the ribbon is glued to the card, glue around the ribbon and close the card on itself.

Glue the serviette motif on the card, and trim the edges to fit.
Decorate with Dekopointers if you would like to and you are done!
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy valentine craft.
