Do you get tons of junk mail? I get envelopes flooding my house every day, and they are going to be the base of the project today. Recycling the junk mail envelopes into cute Valentines will make this February a little greener.

Heart Bookmark

First, start off by making the template for the smaller heart. I cut a square of paper out and folded it on the diagonal, I used the corner as the heart’s point and the straight sides of the square for the sides.

All that needs cut is the rounded top. Then using this heart, I made a second template a little bigger, this template is the one used for the envelopes.


Place the larger heart template on the corner of the envelope and trace the top of the heart. All you cut is the top or the “bumps” of the heart. This leaves the 2 sides and point enclosed making the bookmark by creating a “pocket” that the book page fits into.


Next, decorate the envelopes by gluing the smaller heart to the front and back of the envelope heart.

Once the glue is dry, the bookmark can be used.  If these are going to be given out you could add a note that says, “You’re tops in my book.”  or “Marked by love.”
