How To Make A Page Corner Bookmark: Paper Edition!


So I've already made a tutorial for a quick and easy fabric page corner bookmark (which I just adore all of the sudden!) here. But if you've got some pretty scrapbooking paper lying around or if you just aren't a huge fan of sewing, here is a quick and easy paper version of this great craft!

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Paper or cardstock (in two different colors/patterns if desired)
  • Ribbon/tassel if desired
  • Glue
  • Scissors

STEP ONE:

Download and print this template, then cut it out along the outer solid lines. Re-size as desired before printing.

STEP TWO:


Use the template to cut the shape out of your primary pattern of paper. Then snip the little triangles off of the template along the lines for a new square template and cut out a square of a secondary color (or the same color if you choose).


You should be left with this!

STEP THREE:


If you feel like adding a ribbon or a tassel to the corner, do so now by gluing it to the inside of the paper right at the corner between the two wings.

STEP FOUR:


With the tassel now glued down, go ahead and apply glue to the rest of the square portion of the same side of the paper as shown.

STEP FIVE:


Apply the square piece of paper with the colored side facing up, over top of the tassel as well.

STEP SIX:


Fold down one of the wings so that the corner lines up with the far corner of the square piece. Don't glue down this flap.

STEP SEVEN:


Apply glue to the top/colored side of this wing.

STEP EIGHT:


Now fold down the remaining flap to glue it in place. It's okay if some of the under flap is showing. If it bothers you, you can trim it away until it is even with the top flap and no longer visible.

Now you can add any fancy embellishments to the front of it that you want! I like to add ribbons and little things like that, but you can do anything you want!


Then slip it on the corner of a book page and enjoy your new bookmark! You made it yourself! Good job!
