Below are the directions to create the Valentine Bookmark using PicMonkey.com. Of course, if you have a program like Photoshop, that would be easier for you to use.

You’ll need 4 pictures of your child. Three head shots and one full body shot. Grab your kids and have some fun with taking these photos! Dress them up, wear masks, use a fake mustache or grab a hat.

1. Download the Free bookmark images from the bottom of the post, go to PicMonkey and click on EDIT A PHOTO.

2. Upload the image titled “ValentineBOOKMARK_square.jpg” you just downloaded from this post by clicking on the “click to open” option on the top left of the site.DIY Adorable Valentine Bookmarks

7. Using the text option, add your child’s name to the bottom of the bookmark (I used the Arial font) and save.

8. If you want to do a backside to the bookmark, upload the BACK bookmark image (repeating step 2) and use your full length image as an overlay (repeating steps 3, 4 and 5).

9. Last you will want to open your saved images, in whatever photo program you normally print images from and PRINT! Cut out your bookmarks (if you print a front and back, glue both sides together),  punch a hole in the top and add a ribbon.

    1. Leah- There are lots of options, of course it will depend on what you have available to you on your computer. I tend to use Photoshop, but if you save in PicMonkey, you could just throw the saved image into a Word Doc to print!

  1. I love these bookmarks, but I am having some trouble. The bookamrk template downloads as a pdf and Picmonkey needs a jpg. Do you have a jpg version of the template?
