Cow bookmark was on the “to do list” for quite a while as I knew the snout would look really adorable and it really does! The horns are pretty fancy too, even more so as they are look so fun sticking out when the book is closed.

Or Follow These Step by Step Folding Instructions
We are showing the fist steps with an orange paper as it’s more clear this way.
Start by folding a sheet of origami paper into half (fold across the diagonal line) to get a triangle.
Grab one layer of the paper at the top of the triangle and fold it towards the bottom – a square should form.
Take one corner of the triangle and fold it to the bottom middle. Unfold.
Do the same with the other side.
Now fold the same corners to the top of the triangle.
Tuck the flaps into the pocket.
Your corner bookmark base is now complete.
Now lets turn this corner bookmark into a cow corner bookmark
Draw spots with a black marker (or a brown one if you fancy brown and white cows more).
Cut a snout out of pink paper. Draw nostrils.
Glue the snout on the bookmark.
Draw eyes or stick on two wiggle eye stickers.
Cut horns out of beige paper and glue them on the bookmark.
Your cow corner bookmark is ready!
