One of my teachers taught me this in a craft activity. Incredibly easy to make, and quite pretty too ;)
Use either paper or an old Christmas card or any old card x)
And my explaining isn't so good so hopefully the pictures help.
It takes either 5 to 10 minutes, once you get it though you can easily do it in five minutes rather than 10...

This looks really cool, I want to make one for my mum. She's a librarian, so she gets through a lot of bookmarks.
