Now grab the same corners and move them towards the top corner of the triangle. Crease well and tuck the flaps into the pocket.

Last steps in making a bookmark

We’ve got the base of the corner bookmark made, this is the sea and the sky :). Now to make the boat. Cut a triangle out of brown and white paper – the size has to fit the corner bookmark “triangle part”. Glue the brown triangle to the bottom of the bookmark. Cut the white one in half and glue on the halfs on the upper part of the bookmark.
