Corner Book Mark Tutorial

 This is probably one of the easiest page saver tutorials you will find!
All you need to make this corner book mark is
An old envelope or flat paper bag (the kind card shops use)
Scissors
Tape or glue
Decorative paper
Scalloped scissors
Ruler
Pencil.

 

Start in the bottom corner of the envelope or flat paper bag.
Measure in about two inches (or desired size) on both sides and make a small mark.
Using your ruler connect the two marks to make a straight line as shown below.

 

Cut along the line.
You should now have the most basic corner bookmark.


From there you can write a message on the bookmark or cover with decorative paper by simply cutting a coordinating sized triangle and gluing it on the bookmark.


For a scalloped edge, simply cut along the bottom with scalloped scissors.
Easy!

  2. I think even I could make this... well maybe. It does require scissors and things with me and scissors get iffy.
