A Hearts and Flowers Bookmark is a great Mother's Day gift for moms that love to read. With this bookmark you can give your mom your heart and a way to enjoy a good book.

What You'll Need:

Construction paper

Scissors

Clear vinyl adhesive paper

Colorful cord

Paper clip

Cut three hearts and three flower shapes out of different colored construction paper. Play with the design of your flowers and hearts.

When you are happy with the arrangement, cut two 6-inch squares of the clear adhesive paper.

Take the backing off one piece, and lay it sticky side up on the table. Carefully arrange the hearts and flowers on the sticky side of the paper.

Put a 12-inch piece of colorful satin or metallic cord on the bookmark so there is a small loop above the flowers and some of the cord hangs down from the heart and flower arrangement.

Weight the hanging end of the cord with a large paper clip. Take the second sheet of contact paper, remove the backing, and cover the other side of your design. Remove the paper clip.

Cut away the excess contact paper, leaving behind your design and the bookmark cord. Your mother will read the love that went into your gift.

Make this fun and easy bookmark for your mom and promise her you'll keep yourself and your siblings busy for at least 15 minutes a day so she can quietly read and put your creation to use.

Mother's Day is a special time to show your mother just how much she means to you, and what better way to do it than with crafts!
