Supplied needed for diy origami bookmarks:
- Sharpie (Optional for Decorations)
How to make an origami bookmark:
Cut the paper into a square that is 4 inches by 4 inches.
Fold your square into a triangle by folding one corner to the opposite corner.
Next, make a diamond shape by folding up the right corner to the top of the triangle and then do the same thing with the left corner as well. Crease the folds.
Then unfold these corners back down to bring it back to a the same triangle shape that was in step 2.
Next fold down just the front sheet of the paper from the top of the triangle to the bottom edge and crease this edge as well.
Now fold the right edge of the triangle back up and tuck the end of this corner into the bookmark. Follow the same process for the left edge of the triangle as well.
It is that easy to make an origami corner bookmark.
That’s it! Now you can decorate them with the sharpie if you like.
