Tutorial for Origami Corner Bookmarks

This is the easiest bookmark you'll ever make but it's cute, it's functional and it's fast.

The basic bookmark requires only a 6x6 doube-sided piece of paper


 Fold in half

 Fold 1 coner back to half-way point
 Fold right corners up to half-way point and make sure to crease well.
Unfold the 2 corners you just folded up.  (the purpose of this step is only to crease the paper for the next step)


 Hold the bookmark in your hand and open the area between the corner that was folded down and the back,
While holding the bookmark, fold the 2 right corners up into the fold. The creases you made earlier should help in folding these up.  Now the back sheet will be a square but the other 3 corners will be folded up into a triangle.
When finished your bookmark should look like this.  It's useable as is, just side down over the corner of the page. If you like you can embellish.
