How to make origami paper corner bookmarks

Do you know how to make origami paper corner bookmarks ? Sounds scary right?

I love to craft but I have to admit my skills are not advanced and when my daughter was invited to an origami party this month my heart sank a bit as she declared she wanted a little practice first!

Yikes.

I know nothing about origami.

Well actually I KNEW nothing about origami but after this weekend I think I am on my way to understanding what this fancy paper folding is all about.

I had seen my good pal Maggy from the amazing craft blog Red Ted Art shared some fabulous paper corner bookmark crafts on her Facebook page along with video tutorials so I thought that would be a great place to start. Oh my goodness how right I was, her video tutorials are excellent, clear, concise and precise they show you exactly what to do.

We had a go at making penguins. monsters and foxes and we  found it straightforward and great fun.

We did veer off Maggy ‘s Red Ted Art You Tube channel to find a Pokemon one but to be honest it was nigh on impossible to find one we could follow and that made sense to us. They were badly lit or confusing so back we went to Red Ted Art ,followed Maggy’s basic principles and made our own Pokemon!

She is the queen of you tube craft tutorials.

What fun we had…a brand new skill learnt and not one penny spent. A really lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Take a look at what we made… how cool! Lovely to gift to friends and the most useful bookmarks ever (and the cutest.)
