Fun Indoor Activities for Kids With RedTedArt-Origami Bookmarks


To make an Origami Corner Bookmark you will need:

  • Any square paper (though I show you how to shape your paper into a square perfectly)*


  • Scissors (if using a rectangular piece of paper or looking to embellish the bookmark later)
  • Makers (again, if you wish to embellish your bookmark later)

First you will need to make a square out of your paper. Corner bookmarks need squares of paper, but here we show you how to create that perfect square!!

  • Take your A5 sheet of paper and fold over one corner to create a triangle.
  • Cut off the excess and rotate your triangle so the long edge is at the bottom and the right angle faces up. Make sure the top of the triangle is looking up and you have the long edge running perpendicular.

  • Fold the lower right corner up to meet the top right angled corner.
  • Repeat for the left side.
  • Fold these two back open.
  • Flip down ONE of the top sheets and crease.

  • Now fold the flaps you created back up and tuck INTO your bookmark.
  • Repeat for the other side
  • Congratulations, you have just created your basic Origami Corner Bookmark!
