When in a creative drought, I do a personal project called ‘Week of…’ where I take a simple craft and spend a week experimenting with said craft. It usually consists of making something new every day. You don’t have to do a drastically different thing every day either, you could improve on something if you can.
Today’s feature will be on origami corner bookmarks. Any avid readers here? An origami corner bookmark is a lovely way to ‘accessorise’ your book, plus they’re fairly easy to make. For most of mine, I made using a 15cm square of paper, and as such they come out pretty large. I then tried a 7.5cm square, and then it came out too small. Perhaps for a good size, you should try in-between at 10-11cm? You will have to cut your own size from a 15cm origami square.
And for the last one, I had a leftover piece of paper of 7.5cm by 15cm. With a length like this, you can make a normal rectangular bookmark with a cute motif on the top, like my heart one. It doesn’t have to be a heart either, there’s a lot of other designs you can use!
So in summary, a square piece of paper creates a corner bookmark. If you prefer a rectangular bookmark, cut your square in half to make two or make the heart!
