I tried six different origami bookmark instructions (from a bunch of different sites) and yours was by far the best. Well done. Thanks.

This is really great! I made this for my grandma (with an added light, of course) for her birthday! She really liked it! Although, you might want to add a bit more detail, and the pics not so blurry. Other than that, great instructable!!!

Great instructable and great idea! I am not trying to be rude but I think that in the title it would be better if it did not say "Better than others" Although I do think this is great and is better than others It would draw more people in to your instructable without it! 5 stars!

This is very easy to accomplish, all it takes is a little common sense. The "legs", or the left and right points on the triangle, fold up at a (I wanna say) 90 degree angle, so as to make the triangle a diamond. Then, the tips of the "legs" fold into the body of it the now diamond.

 that was easy :D thanks so much!!
Neat little bookmark; simple and quick to make...for someone with paper folding/origami experience.

The instructable itself could do with a little more explanation to make it clearer. Diagrams to supplement the photos could be helpful.

I think you just fold down the tops of the triangles in to the pocket

It is great!! Simple, easy to do and absolutely usefull!! Thanks!! nurks
Wonderful! I use a regular piece of paper turned into a square. It's oversized, but I can write notes on it too. The lines even run in the right direction.

this is hard
Whoa you got that paper from Barnes and Nobles!
Oh yeah btw I dont use bookmarks I just memorize the page number and shut the book. And if I dont remember, I just find where I remember reading last. This way which I do more helps with comprehension and memory.
yes but some people are what we call "Dumb" like me and will forget seconds after closing the book and freak out
Oh... for some reason I though you sayd Dave & Busters lol!

this bookmark is great! at first i worried it might fall off, but i tested it a couple times by knocking it off my table, and it stayed put. I also like the fact that it can fit any size book as long as its pages have right angle corners, unlike some other bookmarks which use, let's say, a ribbon, that can sometimes be too long or too short.

Simply Simple, but very handy.

ridiculously simple, I like!... just made one and will be using it in my book tonight.
Ridiculous as in funny, or as in stupid? :P Kidding. It IS terrificly simple. :P Even a person with limited or no origami experience can make one. I made one myself and it was awesome!
ridiculous in how amazingly simple it is while amazingly useful... I have plans to make 3 more myself.... just need to choose my papers... basically the bottom lines is that I really liked this really simple really useful instructable

I like it. Util now, I only knew these form asa bookmark as a metal clip.
But teh better than others-part, I am not willed to share.
Different purposes demand different bookmarks. So, yours is nice, I would use it in my reading corner, but on the way, I still would prefer mine.
