How to make a DIY corner bookmark!
Handmade corner bookmarks are extremely practical and slip over the corner of a book with ease. Customise yours by re-cycling wrapping paper or birthday cards. They also make great little thank you presents or can easily be slipped into a birthday card.
What you'll need to make a corner bookmark:
You will need:
- Straight scissors
- Decorative scissors for the trim
- Sturdy paper or card
- Decorative paper
- Glue stick
Measure and create a square that is 13cm x 13cm and then fold it in half into a triangle.
Fold the triangle in half again for a second time.
Open the piece of paper and then cut out one triangle.
Use the triangle piece you cut out as a template to mark out the decorative paper.
Cut out the triangle slightly smaller and then use the decorative scissors to create a scolloped edge on the longest side of the triangle. Make this cut approximately 0.5 cm in to allow the paper underneath to show.
Apply glue to one side of a smaller triangle (next to where you cut a piece out) and then fold together so two pieces are now glued together and make a smaller triangle.
Apply glue to one side of the smaller triangle and attach the decorative paper
Finished corner bookmark
Your decorative corner bookmark is now complete.
Slide it over a page and it should fit nice and snug!
