About: Welcome to my DIY page. I post my favourite step-by-step designs, mostly arts and crafts. I hope you enjoy browsing!

In this DIY, we'll be making a Cute Flower Petal Origami Bookmark. This is a super easy, stylish, girly bookmark, which makes a change from scraps of paper or turning over the corner of the page. Plus it's made from recyclable materials!

Supplies:

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

An unwanted book (you can make it out of either a novel, newspaper, a manuscript, or just card or paper)

Clear tape

Split pins

Scissors

Ruler

Pencil

Craft Glue

Glue container

Toothpick

Corner punch (optional)

Step 2: Cut a Square From Your Unwanted Book

Use 12.5cm x 12.5cm for your measurements.

Step 3: Cut 8 Smaller Squares

Cut out 8 smaller squares (again from the unwanted book).

Use 5.5cm x 5.5cm for your measurements.

Step 4: Fold Down Two Corners

Fold down two corners to create the bookmark base, using the larger 12.5cm x 12.5cm square.

Step 5: Secure Flaps in Place

Secure the flaps in place using clear tape.

Fold the tape underneath the bottom for a neat finish.

Step 6: Cut the Ends of the Tape Off

Cut the end of the tape of with scissors.

Cut the tape as close to the bookmark base as possible.

Step 7: Fold the Bottom Flap Up

Fold the bottom flap up and score, making sure it is as lined up and straight as possible.

Step 8: Glue Flap in Place

Make sure to glue the edge and corners down firmly.

Step 9: [Optional] Round Corners Off

Use either a pair of scissors or the corner punch to round the corners off.

Step 10: Fold Small Square in Half

Repeat for all eight 5.5cm x 5.5cm squares.

Step 11: Fold in Half the Other Way

Repeat for all eight 5.5cm x 5.5cm squares.

Step 12: Fold Into a Triangle

Repeat for all eight 5.5cm x 5.5cm squares.

Step 13: Fold Another Triangle

Fold another triangle on the other side, and repeat for all eight 5.5cm x 5.5cm squares.

Step 14: Push in One Side and Fold

Repeat for all eight 5.5cm x 5.5cm squares.

Step 15: Push in the Other Side and Fold

Repeat for all eight 5.5cm x 5.5cm squares.

Step 16: Turn Up One Corner

Repeat for all eight 5.5cm x 5.5cm squares.

Step 17: Turn Up the Other Corner

Repeat for all eight 5.5cm x 5.5cm squares.

Step 18: Make 8 in Total!

Step 19: Apply Glue to One Side of the Petal

Make sure to get underneath the turned up corners.

Step 20: Attach the Petal to Another Petal

Hold firmly in place for a few seconds.

Step 21: Attach the Petals Until You Get to the Last One

Hold firmly in place for a few seconds.

Step 22: When You Get to the Last Petal Put Blue on Both Sides

Attach to the flower and hold firmly in place for a few seconds.

Step 23: Apply Glue to the Petals to Make It Lie Flat

Press down and hold for a few seconds.

Step 24: Apply Glue to the Back of the Flower

Attach it to the bookmark base.

Step 25: Attach the Flower to the Bookmark

Line up the top petal with the peak of the bookmark triangle.

Step 26: Attach a Split Pin to the Center of the Flower

Making sure the prongs lie flat.

Step 27: [Optional] Extra Touch

If you want yours to look more complicated and look more of an intricate design, you can also make a smaller flower to go in the middle of this one. But if you'd rather keep it how it is, that's fine too!
