Great Sunday School Teacher gift! Show someone how special they are with a hand crafted Heart of Gold Bookmark.

INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Follow the directions for the Heart of Gold craft for kids.
  • With a hole punch, punch a hole in the upper left portion of the heart.
  • There are many ways to attach the gold ribbon to the gold heart.  One example shown here, the thin gold ribbon it looped through the hole.  A nice way to finish this bookmark is to add a few gold beads to the ends of the cord and knot the two ends together.
  • For the other example, I insert a gold brad (paper fastener) through the hole and then through one end of the ribbon.  Bend the brad open (behind the heart) to hold it in place.
  • NOTE: You may want to finish the edges of the ribbon with a dab of clear nail polish to keep it from fraying.
