DIY: Corner Bookmark

Happy 1st of February to everyone! Including you Hugo (this post made me think of you a lot)!

This DIY is related to the present theme of this week "Book Week", but it isn't really on purpose....

A corner bookmark is a really original and creative way to keep your page! I had promised to do a video to how to make a corner bookmark, but I have decided to make a blog post for it....

First take a piece of paper (colour is best but not obligatory).

First step is to draw a square - I recommend 5cm.

Then draw it's diagonals:

Then (follow closely) draw a line from the edge of the pages parrallel to the diagonal.

Then draw two triangles on the side using the sides of the square for the help of one side. The image will help you here a lot.

Now cut! The result will look like a fox head!

Now put the "ears" down, and glue them down:

Many people draw eyes on their bookmarks. But I tried something different for this one and it looks really quite good - Cuting a triangle from the bookmark:
