Making The Corner Bookmark : Time Lapse Demonstration

Step by Step : Instructions

Step 1:

Print our FREE corner bookmark template. Neatly, cut round the edge of the square template.

Step 2:

Fold the paper square in half, using fold line 1, to make a triangle. For next step, position top corner of triangle pointing away from you.

Step 3:

Fold along fold line 2, matching up the corners, so that you can see one half of the Trojan helmet. Repeat with fold line 3 so you can now see the whole helmet.

Step 4:

Unfold these two halves of the helmet to show fold lines 2, 3 and 4 again. Using fold line 4, fold the top corner of the paper down (top layer of paper only) so it touches the bottom edge of the paper.

Step 5:

Use fold line 2 to refold the paper again, but this time tuck the blank section down the back of the helmet. Do this again for fold line 3.

Step 6:

Choose which ‘helmet topper’ option you would like for your bookmark and cut out neatly. Stick ‘helmet topper’ inside the pocket section of the bookmark.

Tip: If you choose to use glue, make sure glue has fully dried before using it in a book.
