If you are a regular reader or more to the point YouTube viewer of Red Ted Art, you will know, that I am currently creating WEEKLY new DIY Corner Bookmark Designs.. mainly because the bookmark corners are just so fun to make.. and because the kids on YouTube keep asking for more.. how can I not? It does however, frequently take me a few weeks to then put said lovely corner bookmarks here on the blog! Ha. So if you want to keep ahead, make sure you sign up to my (free) YouTube Channel too!!! But enough waffle, onto the crafty task at hand… we have some LOVELY DIY Chick Bookmarks for you today (perfect for our collection of Chick Crafts, don’t you think?!). I actually made them for Chinese New Year (at the time of writing, it is “The Year of the Rooster”).. but my Rooster bookmark, turned into more of a Chicken Bookmark…. never mind. Perfect for Easter, don’t you think? So without further ado.. our DIY Easter Chick Bookmark Corners! Though technically not “pure Origami”, I have added these to our great collection of Easter Origami for kids, as they are so cute and easy! They certainly fit well with our Paper Easter Crafts – Easter DIYs sorted with just paper!!!
These Chick Corner Bookmark Designs where first published in Feb 2017 for Easter! And have been updated and republished for your convenience!

DIY Chick Bookmark – How To:
If you would like to see a step by step PHOTO guide as to how to make a basic Origami Corner Bookmark, do check out this Bookmark Corner DIY here. Alternatively, I do think these short and fun videos really do the trick! Here is what I hope is a super help Bookmark How To video, below I share some basic instructions!
We basically made the “basic” Origami Corner Bookmark. Then we glued down the flaps, to give it a bit more “stability”. Trimmed the bookmark to round it off a little it and give it that cute chick bookmark shape. Finally, we made some heart shaped feet for the chick bookmarks and a heart shapped “wattle” for the Chicken/ Rooster Bookmark. Peaks, are curved triangles and finally some little hole punched cheeks for the chicks and a red comb for the chicken bookmark….
