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
It should look like this.
Step 11: Glue
Prepare your glue and a paintbrush.
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.(:
Step 15: FINISHED!
Ta-da. All done, super easy.
