Step 1: Square Paper
Fold the paper diagonally in half as shown in the picture.
Step 2: The "Corner"
Take the left tip and fold it up to the upper center corner. Do it on the next side. Unfold. These are the flaps.
Step 3: The Pocket
Using the uppermost layer, fold it to the bottom center (where the creases of the previous folds meet). This will serve as the pocket for the flaps.
Step 4: Going "IN"
Fold the "flaps" like what you did to it a while ago.
Step 5: "IN" Process
Fold the flaps into the "pockets", creasing sharply. The tip of the flaps should be in the middle inside so it would fit on the page.
Step 6: "IN" Process Finished
This is the product of step 5.
Step 7: Decorating Time!
The most fun part: DECORATING! The decoration you want to see should be placed on the flaps. The other parts won't be visible in use.
Step 8: Use Your Work of Art!
Insert the corner of the page in the pocket (the same place where you placed the flaps). TA-DAHHHH! Your new bookmark.
