I designed these cute Valentine bookmarks for my two youngest daughters.  They are both avid readers and these little cuties are perfect for holding their spot in the current books they are reading.  Don’t you just love the googly eyes on that heart?

These would also make cute Valentine’s Day planner clips.  I have several planners to keep my life organized.  So I think I am going to make a couple of these for using in my planners during the month of February.

About this Valentine Paper Clips Plastic Canvas Pattern:

These Valentine paper clips are super quick to stitch.  You can complete one in around 15 minutes.

This project uses just 3 colors of yarn – pink, white, and red.  They are a great way to use up your plastic canvas scraps.

These Valentine planner clips were completed using the continental stitch (half cross-stitch) so they would be a great project for beginners.

Having trouble finding plastic canvas in local stores? I can hardly ever find plastic canvas in my local craft stores anymore. So I buy my plastic canvas in bulk on Amazon.

      Hi Peggy,
      After you fill out your name and email address, the software removes that box and in its place is a download link. It says “Click here to download the free plastic canvas pattern.” Click on the link to open the PDF and you can then save a copy. Hope that helps.
