May's Monthly Make - Easy Origami Bookmark

For my first monthly make I'm going to show you how to make a simple origami bookmark...

Difficulty rating: ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ (Simple)


  • Square piece of paper - I used 15cm x 15cm (plain or patterned)
  • Things to decorate you bookmark such as washi tape or stickers

Step 1

Place your paper face down and place it in a diamond shape.


Step 2

Fold the bottom corner up to meet the bottom corner. 

Step 3

Fold the right and left corner up towards the top corner making a firm crease and then unfold.


Step 4

Fold down the top half corner to meet the middle of the triangle.

Step 5

This is where it might get a bit tricky. Fold the right corner and tuck it inside so it will look like picture 2.


Step 6

Repeat step 5 with the left corner. You have now made you're bookmark!


Step 7

If you wish you can decorate your bookmark. I've used washi tape here but you can use stickers or draw pictures. If you really want to get creative you can add ears and turn your bookmark into an animal.
