Introduction: Simple Paper Bookmarks

About: GO Make Something!

If you're tired of losing the page you were on while reading or just can't find that bookmark you like then this Instructable is for you!

I'll show you how to make 3 simple bookmarks out of paper that each won't take 10 minutes to make and they look super cool :)

Let's Get Started!

Step 1: Tools and Supplies :

  • Paper (The Thicker The Better)
  • Glue Stick
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Piece Of String Or Ribbon
  • Phil The Minion (Good Company)

Step 2: Corner Bookmark

  1. Pick the paper you want to use ( obviously red is the smart choice! )
  2. Draw 3 6x6 cm squares ( as shown in the pictures )
  3. Cut out that shape
  4. Mark the extra pieces from corner to corner and cut them
  5. Fold the two triangles on each other and glue them
  6. Finally customize it to your liking and you're done!

This one sits on the corner of the page you want to mark like in the picture.

Step 3: Arrow Bookmark

  1. Draw an arrow shape on the paper you'll use
  2. Cut out the arrow
  3. Fold the tail ( as show in the pictures )
  4. Customize if you want and that's it!

The great thing about this one is that you can also point to the line that you stopped at!

Step 4: Drawing Bookmark

  1. Draw whatever you like on a piece of paper
  2. Outline the drawing with a shape like a circle
  3. Cut out that shape
  4. Punch a hole in the top of the circle
  5. Thread the string or ribbon through that hole
  6. Tie a knot at the end of the string and you're done!

I like this one because you can draw anything on it so you can draw a theme from the book!

Just make sure that it's small enough to fit inside the book :)

Step 5: That's All Folks!

That's it for my first Instructable ;)
