Once you have made your basic corner bookmark in either red or white you can start decorating it. We made our basic bookmark in red. So at this point cut out strips of white paper approximately 0.5cm wide.
Turn your bookmark so it makes a diamond and start sticking on your white stripes. It is fine for them to overlap on the edges. Start at the top and work your way down. It will fit about 6-7 strips.
Once done, trim the overlapping white edges off. You now have your “Stripes” of your Stars and Stripes Bookmark. Onto the Stars the bit.
For this I overlayed a blue piece of paper on the top left hand corner and stuck it down. Again, it doesn’t matter if it is too big. Next trim the overhanging edge off.
Finally, get some white stars (we used star confetti) and stick them on, in an even pattern, to get your Stars of your Stars and Stripes Bookmark.
And done. That was easy, wasn’t it? I really love this US Flag Bookmark Corner and I do think it makes a wonderful gift for American friends on the 4th of July! It is such a fun paper craft for kids and just a perfect and easy Patriotic paper Craft for Independence Day!
