  • How to make a corner bookmark. Page Corner Bookmarks - Step 1

    Cut out the body template piece - the square-with-two-triangles-attached shape.

    Trace this template onto your pretty piece of card stock (or onto the plain piece of card stock that you intend to decorate), and cut the shape out.

    Step 3

    Using your ruler and the tip of your mechanical pencil with no lead showing, score a line (drag the tip firmly along the paper so it makes an indent) along the edges of the square that connect to the two triangles.

    Step 4

    If you want, cut a square of pretty paper slightly smaller than the one you used for your template and glue it onto the square portion of your shape.

    Fold one triangle inwards along the line you scored, so it covers the upper half of the square.

    Step 8

    As in step 4, if you’ve used plain card stock and want to glue fancy paper on top of it, cut a triangle out of your fancy paper that’s slightly smaller than the folded-over triangles of the bookmark. Glue the smaller triangle on top of the larger, folded-over ones.

    Step 9

    Cut out the eye and teeth pieces from card stock and glue them in place (the teeth get glued behind the long edge of the folded-and-glued triangles).

    Try making up other monstrous features, like horns or wings or long forked tongues. Cut out different features to make a bookmark that looks like a cat, or an elephant, or an iguana.
