     Check out mine. No tape require and does the same. It dons't fall out of the book when dropped.

    It's cool how it's folded but I think I would prefer this version in new books because yours is a little thick.

    easiest bookmark ever

    Reminds me of a trick my mom taught me about 50 years ago. take an old envelope, colored or plain. cut off the corner about an inch and a half from the actual corner, forming a triangle. slip the corner over the corner of your page.

    Decorating before using is a fun idea. I like it. LOL KItty
