Folding Instructions with Pictures

We’ll show you how to fold an basic corner bookmark – to get decoration ideas, simply check one or more of our ideas shared at the end of these folding instructions.

Fold a piece of square origami paper in half, diagonally. You will get a shape of a triangle.

Take the top layer of paper, at the top of the triangle, and fold the top to the bottom. You will see a white square form inside your triangle.

Bring both left and right corner of the triangle to the center (at the bottom). Make sure the folds are super crisp.

Unfold both sides.

Now fold the same two corners to the top of your triangle, transforming it to a square. Again, make the folds nice and crisp.

Tuck them into the pocket that has formed.

You have just made your origami corner bookmark! Now decorate it into a character of your choosing, you can use our corner bookmarks ideas to kick start your imagination.
