This Dragon Bookmark has been a long time coming.. my viewers on YouTube have asked for an easy Dragon Corner Bookmark Design for aaaaages.. I made them a Dragon Hug a Book (based on Toothless from How To Train a Dragon).. but oh no, they REALLY wanted a Corner Bookmark Design. How can I refuse? I played around with different designs for ages.. and finally settled on this type of corner bookmark.
It is different to all my other Corner Bookmark Designs, as the basic Origami pattern is based on the Origami Heart Bookmark and not the traditional “Origami Corner Bookmark DIY“. After much fiddling with the traditional design, I decided to base the Origami Dragon Bookmark on Willowday’s wonderful Unicorn Bookmark. Do hop over and take a look at this design too!! Isn’t it lovely? And just perfect for a Dragon, don’t you think?
