TUTORIALS ON HOW TO MAKE AN ORIGAMI BOOKMARK

Before you give up and think, “I’ll never get those damn paper folds right,” let me reassure you that making one of these adorable and clever origami bookmarks is simple and only takes a minute!

Use a piece of origami paper to make it easier to remember which side is which (commonly found origami paper is colored on one side and white on the other). Once you’ve mastered the folding, get creative and use other types of pretty paper—even an interesting page from a magazine can have a great character when folded.


1. How To Make An Origami Bookmark by Parents

I love finding fun, simple origami projects for kids. Whether it be folding paper planes, boats to float in a puddle, or these origami bookmarks, folding paper is an activity that encourages school-aged kids to slow down and concentrate — after all, they must carefully follow a series of step-by-step instructions in order to successfully complete their project.

This corner bookmark is simple to make, requiring just five folds, but children may require guidance or assistance — especially the first time they try it out. Be guided by the age and capability of your child to determine how much support he needs.
