Bookmarks are a great way to mark your place in a book. They can get expensive, however, and the standard, rectangular-shaped ones can get pretty boring. Why not make your own bookmark? With a square sheet of paper, and a few minutes of your time, you can make a neat, triangular bookmark that fits right over the corner of your page. If you aren't comfortable with origami, then there are still other ways to make a bookmark! To make a corner bookmark, start by folding a 6 by 6 inch piece of paper in half to make a triangle. Then, unfold the triangle, fold the paper in half diagonally the other way, and unfold it again to divide your paper into 4 triangles.
Although many people own digital e-readers, nothing will ever be the same as holding a book in your hands and feeling the pages. These bookmarks are the perfect small, inexpensive presents for the book lovers in your life. Many book lovers think it is a sin to crease the page corners so a handmade bookmark will be an appreciated gift. You can use a variety of paper for this whether it be plain or colorful, matte or shiny, anything is possible. Construction paper, crepe paper or tissue paper are common to use for this project but if you want something fancier you can go to your local artist supply store.
