Flower Bookmarks DIY – How To:
Yes, it is video time again, however, you can SEE step by step photo instructions as to how to make a basic Origami Bookmark here. I will then add some extra info below the video as to how to recreate these adorable DIY Flower Bookmark Designs! They really are easy and are a super duper cute DIY for Mother’s Day, Teacher appreciation, Spring Bookmarks or “just because”.. don’t you think? The Kawaii Faces are optional.. but I think they are SUPER DUPER CUTE!
- Begin by making your basic Origami Bookmark in green – like leaves or the grass.
- Once you have your green bookmark base, it is time to make your flowers.
- Decide on your colour combination of your flower bookmark, as well as the types of petals you would like. We made two different ones – the blue flower and the white daisy bookmark.
- For the blue flower bookmark, you will need 5 blue petals – oval shaped and one yellow one.
- For the daisy bookmark, I cut out 12 long thin white petals and one yellow oval for the centre of the daisy.
- Glue all your petals onto your bookmark, but take care not to stick them onto the lower part of your bookmark.
- Add your centre. Decorate with with your pens and rosy cheeks.
- Finally, you can make a little red ladybird or bee and as it as a cute detail.
- Your DIY Flower Corner Boomark Designs are now finished! Hooray.
