This tiny origami bookmark is really easy to make and doesn’t fall off the page when you open your book!
Notes on this tutorial
I tried using 2 sizes of paper: a 2″ square and a 3″ square; both work well and were easy to fold.
I made one modification that makes it (in my opinion) even more useful. By turning the square side into another triangle, only the corner of the page is obscured by the bookmark, so you can keep the bookmark in place while you read. These would be great to mark several pages of a reference book – it’s a nice (and attractive) alternative to sticky note markers!
Here’s a simple way to make my modification…
At the end of Step 3 of the tutorial (below, left) open the front half back down again (below, right):
Fold down the top point to the middle (below, left) then fold up the front half again (below, right). Now resume at Step 4 of the tutorial.
