Make a decorative and durable bookmark from scraps
This was inspired by "Cutting Corners" by Anna the Ewok here on CO+K but takes it to the next level.

I didn't take pictures of the process as I was going along as this was more of a trial run, but when I make another one I will add them as my son called dibs on this one in the "Quarantine" theme.

  • How to make a corner bookmark. Cutting Corners 2.0 - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut the corners off of the envelope. Prior to cutting, I lined mine up with the edge of the book, folded it up and cut along the fold.

  • Step 2

    Pick out the images that you want to put on the corner, cut them out and set them aside. I used pictures and description from a sales flier on mine.

  • Step 3

    Pick out the background you want for the images. I flipped through a magazine until I found what I wanted then put the cut corner over the edge of the magazine page, then cut along the edge.

    Do this twice I you will need a background for each side of the bookmark.

  • Step 4

    Glue the background pieces to the envelope corners.

    Then glue the images cut out that you selected and glue them on top of the background pieces.

    Allow to dry for a few minutes.

  • Step 5

    Straighten up any stray edges or uneven edges with the scissors.

  • Step 6

    Apply packing tape to the images on both side to protect them for smearing, smudges, wear and tear.

    One tape is applied to both side, you are done!
