You may have noticed that we have a “thing” about DIY Corner Bookmarks recently.. since making the leap to YouTube almost 2 years ago now, the kids watching the channel have been challenging me to more and more and more Corner Bookmark designs. These handmade bookmarks are based on a very Easy Origami Bookmark, but then, I do cut and embellish. Technically NOT making it an Origami Bookmark. We LOVE these cute corner bookmarks and are totally hooked on making with the kids!  It is so fun to rise to the crafty challenge and come up with new designs for my viewers.

These handmade bookmarks make great little gift ideas and I have had feedback from many readers that they are great fundraiser at school fairs! Or maybe have a go at making some of these bookmark designs for World Bookday? Enjoy!!

The best Corner Bookmark designs ever. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Based on an EASY Origami Bookmark design, this is a great introduction to paper crafts for kids! #bookmarks #cornerbookmarks #bookmarkcorner #diybookmarks #bookmarkdesigns #handmade #homemade #backtoschool #supplies #organization #kids #middleschool
There are so many fabulous Corner Bookmark Designs to choose from!

Corner Bookmark Making Ideas by Season and Topic

To help you find favourite Corner Bookmark Designs, we have put together some topic posts:

If you would like to see other collections of these bookmarks (e.g. animal corner bookmarks), please do leave me a comment with suggestions!

Every time I think.. right I have made as many bookmarks as I possibly can.. I get challenge to a new one! So I thought I would bring them all together for you in one place.. and I will keep updating this page as and when new designs come in. So please do pop back in every so often and see what new designs we have made for you!

Materials needed for Corner Bookmark Designs:

You basically need just paper! And a combination of pens or coloured paper and glue.. here is a basic list that will allow you to make all our designs!

  • White printer paper (yep! Just plain old printer paper – US/ UK)
  • A pad of coloured paper (I buy pretty paper in a local store, but this looks good US/ UK)
  • Coloring Pens (we always stock up on these US/ UK)
  • Scissors (these are super good and work for left and right handed US/ UK)
  • Glue Stick (good quality! US/ UK)

(affiliates added for convenience – purchasing through these links, will not add to your costs, but I will earn a small comission which will go towards the upkeep of this website!)

NOTE: THIS PAGE IS CURRENTLY BEING UPDATE – the formatting may be a little off, but it will be fixed ASAP!

Animal Handmade Bookmark Ideas

Let’s begin with our animal crafts… I have repeated some of these animal bookmarks in other sections, as they also go well with say Halloween or Christmas! And by animals… I mean animals AND insects! We have a Chinese Zodiac Bookmark collection, as well as a Farmyard Bookmark collection (the latter coming soon!). But in the meantime.. check these cute animal corner bookmarks out!
