Is it just me or do you always find that you don’t have anything to mark your spot in the books you’re reading when you’re ready to put it down? Not just me? I didn’t think so.
This simple and cute corner bookmark is perfect for you if you are like me and always losing your spot. I hate turning down corners and marring those lovely pages, don’t you?
Here’s how you can make your own:
These corner bookmarks can be made with the junk-mail envelopes that inevitably appear in our mailboxes or they can be made from pretty patterned scrapbook papers.
- Envelopes or patterned paper
- Corner Bookmark template (I’ve made one for you-just download and cut out)
- Cutting tool (scissor, paper trimmer, or a ruler & straight edge knife-whatever works best for you)
- Adhesive (glue or tape runner, which is what I prefer)
- Pencil for tracing
If using envelopes, simply snip off the corner of the envelope. Decorate if desired. I used some washi tape but you can use markers or stickers.
If you’re using my template, print it out, cut and trace onto your patterned paper. Alternately, if you can print directly on the back of your patterned paper you can skip tracing. Cut out the template, fold along the dotted lines and use the adhesive on the extra flap. Fold over to secure.
That’s it! So simple, right?
How cute would it be to give out a corner bookmark at your next book club meeting? Or, package up a bunch of them and hand out a few to each guest, I mean, who isn’t reading twelve books at once? If you’re looking for something else to read, may I suggest my friend Talya’s debut novel, The Accidental Salvation of Gracie Lee? It’s the book shown below and it’s so good <~~~~not sponsored, just a huge fan.
Need step-by-step instructions? I made a little video. Enjoy and let me know if you make one, or twenty!
