Introduction: Corner Page Bookmark

Picture of Corner Page Bookmark

This project was only about a dollar for me, because I had all of the supplies, except the book. So I saw this bookmark, but absolutely NO instructions. What? So I decided to make my own and share it with those of you who love books to! Enjoy!

Step 1: Gather Supplies

What you'll need is a book with blank pages (I got mine at goodwill for $1), a ruler, a pencil, scissors, glue (or glue stick), paintbrush (if your not using a glue stick; use a cheap or crappy one), and pen or fine tip sharpie.

Step 2: Blank Page

Tear a blank page out of your book.

Step 3: Make a Square

Measure and cut out a 5x5 inch square (you can make it bigger or smaller depending on the size of your book pages).

Step 4: Make Four Squares

Use your pencil and ruler to split the square into four sections (mine were 2 1/2 inches).

Step 5: Minus One

Cut one square (any one you want) out.

Step 6: And Then There Was Three

This is what it should look like.

Step 7: Lines

Split the alternate angles in half using a straight edge and a ruler.

Step 8: More Cutting

Cut the outside triangles (it should look like an arrow; like this).

Step 9: Folding

Fold the triangles over on the lines.

Step 10: After Folding Both

Step 12: Glueing

After folding and preparing your glue, glue the top triangle to the bottom triangle. DO NOT glue the bottom triangle to the base.

Step 13: Drying

While the glue is drying, I like to put it in a book to flatten out.

Step 14: Finishing Up

Write whatever you desire on it.(:

But I would never have figured out how to make this with a sheet of paper, so that's really cool!!

This is actually a really cool idea. If you used cardstock or fancy colored/resume paper you could totally make this a cool mini gift for an avid young reader / study mate.
