How quick? 45 minutes to make both... yes I crochet fast. Size 10 thread and size 4 hook (I crochet lose, too).
I decided to make my Aunt some bookmarks for her birthday and mail them to her (even though she lives close by) this way she receives something nice in the mail.
I found 2 patterns but changed them slightly to fit what I wanted (I do that a lot).

Here's the pattern for the heart one I used, sort of, I only did 4 rows since I used a larger hook and then just sc around and sc the tail.

Here's the pattern for the shell one, but I did it in thread instead so I added center shells and then changed the border to just add dc around it (like a shell). http://crochetnmore.com/bookmark.htm
