We have another corner bookmark ready for you, this time around we are making a silly octopus corner bookmark (that can also pass as a squid).
We do love simple origami for for kids, we have a bunch of tutorials on the website that are perfect for beginners. But we do love making these origami corner bookmarks the most.
We already made one sea dweller last year, a fierce looking shark corner bookmark, but with the summer approaching we though it was about time to add more (fish is still in the works).
So we have these fun looking octopus corner bookmarks to share with you today.
What you need:
- origami paper (orange, pink, purple or whatever else color you want your octopus to be)
Optional: wiggle eye stickers
Watch the Octopus Corner Bookmarks Video Tutorial
Or Follow These Step by Step Folding Instructions
Fold the origami paper into a triangle with the colored side on the outside.
Fold top of the triangle towards the bottom (one sheet of paper only). A white square should form.
Do the same with the left one.
Fold the same corners again, this time folding them towards the top.
A square will form.
Lastly t+grab the same corners (now on top) and tuck them inside the pocket that has formed.
Time to make octopus corner bookmarks
Cut 8 tentacles out of paper.
Draw circles with a marker.
Glue them inside the bookmark.
Draw eyes or use wiggle eyes stickers.
