Corner Bookmark Tutorial

 Good Afternoon...

Busy yesterday. Spent the day at appointments. I did get time last night to make a couple more projects. So today is a corner bookmark, tomorrow is a fancy fold card and next week an Advent Calendar. Told you I was busy!

The bookmark - Pattern paper on the first one is Basic Grey - Jovial and on the second one discontinued Stampin' Up. Stamp set from Just-Rite Stamps - Whimsical Christmas .

Tutorial for Corner Bookmark

Start with a square piece of cardstock or double sided paper. I used 5 x 5 but as long as it's square it will work. Score at 2 1/2" both directions (or in half each way).

Cut out one of the squares.

Opposite the corner you cut away cut that square on the diagonal. This is where you could also use fancy edged scissors or a border punch. Look closely on the second bookmark and you'll see the border.

Fold it up.

While it is folded just cut a little bit off of the tip. This is where you will place the ribbon if you want a tab to pull on.
Place the ribbon between the two full squares and then glue both of those squares together.
Decorate the front as you like. This is one time you'll want to not add a lot of dimension as it is going between pages in your book.

This would be cute to add if you're giving a book as a gift.
Also useful for your recipe books.

We can bookmark our favorite pages in our craft magazines.

Tell me what you think. I love your comments.Remember unless you leave an address or a link to your blog I can respond back to you.

Have a great Hump is Wednesday you know!
