Reindeer Origami Corner Bookmark

This is a super fun project for origami beginners and kids, plus a great little one to encourage reading! Let’s make a Rudolph Reindeer origami corner bookmark.

We had a lot of fun with monster DIY corner  bookmarks a while ago and so wethought it was time to make something Christmassy this time around.

Reindeer Origami Corner Bookmark


For this easy origami, you’ll need

  • brown origami paper
  • dark brown, red, and white paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • black marker

You can also grab the free printable reindeer origami bookmark folding diagram at the end of this tutorial.

Step by Step Folding Instructions

Start by folding the origami paper (you can totally use regular brown paper for this project, too) diagonally both ways.

Fold into a triangle (colored side on the outside). Crease well.

Now, fold the tip of the triangle to the bottom (one sheet only). You’ll see a white square within the triangle now.

Folding the Paper

Now, fold the right corner of the triangle towards the middle. Do the same with the left one. Crease well and unfold.

Now fold the right corner towards the top and do the same with the left one. Crease well.

Tuck both “flaps” in the pocket. This reindeer corner bookmark is now ready to be decorated.

Making an Origami Corner Bookmark

Cut two antlers from the dark paper, a red nose (or brown one if you’re going with the regular reindeer), and two white circles for the eyes. Draw two black spots in the eyes and glue all things to their places.
