9 Pokemon Bookmark Corner Designs – Pokemon Go DIY

| | | |

Pokemon mania and Origami Bookmark love continues.. and if my kids (aged 6 and 8) are anything to go by, you kids will LOVE them. My son, is Pokemon Go MAD.. my daughter is indifferent to Pokemon Go, but STILL adores making these Pokemon Bookmark Corners. The best thing about this collection of Pokemon Corner Bookmark Designs, is that, once your charges get the hang of the sample 9 I have shared here today, they can go on to design their own ones. As they will have learned the basic steps and processes to make almost any pokemon character! Or least that is how it work for my son!

9 Wonderful Pokemon Bookmark Corners. Make one. Make them ALL. The kids will love them (mine do!!)
First shared in August 2016

We have taken 9 of the most popular Pokemon Characters and we have turned them into BOOKMARKS. There is obviously Pikachu and a Pokeball. But joining Pikachu, we have Eevee, Charmander, Bulbasaur and Squirtle. Those always seem to come as the next four most popular pokemon characters. After that it becomes a little more subjective and many kids will have their own personal favourites. After much deliberation, my son and I picked Meouth, Jigglypuff and Togepi.

As mentioned, once you have had a go at these 9 “basic” pokemon characters, you will get the hang of the process and it will be super easy to design your own pokemon characters!

So, check out our step by step guide to help your kids make fabulous bookmarks too!! A great way to get kids reading or make a whole set of these for Back to School topic books!

NOTE: All of these bookmarks start the same way, with the basic origami bookmark. I have outlined the steps below, but each of the videos also shows it again!

Time needed: 5 minutes

Making a corner bookmark is SUPER easy. We have more detailed instructions with step by step photos here. Or, as mentioned watch the videos below. The basic bookmark only takes minutes to make. You can then take your time over decorating them into pokemon bookmarks.

  1. Fold the square paper across the diagonal to make a triangle

  2. Rotate to bring the long edge parallel, then bring the right corner up to meet the top corner.

  3. Repeat with the corner. You should now have a smaller diamond with a line down the middle.

  4. Open up the last two folds.

  5. Folds down the top corner – only take one sheet of paper.

  6. Bring the right corner back up and fold into the flap.

  7. Repeat with the left corner.
