Time for a super cute and easy Easter Chick Bookmark Design! Paper crafting for Easter made easy! We love making corner bookmarks and spring / Easter time is a great excuse for more new designs!
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!!!

Turn your bookmark into a cute chick corner bookmark
Next glue down the flaps, to give it a bit more “stability” if you wish, but not strictly speaking necessary!
Trim the corners of the bookmark to round it off a little it and give it that cute chick bookmark shape. Be sure not to cut too much off – you need to keep the “straight edges”.
Finally, make the chick features:
- heart shaped feet for the chick bookmarks
- a heart shapped “wattle” for the Chicken/ Rooster Bookmark
- the beaks, are curved triangles
- a red wiggly shape (a bit like a heart with 3 bumps) to make a comb for the chicken bookmark and finally
- some little hole punched cheeks for the chicks
Glue these features all in place,
Once all the features are in place…
… add the chicken’s eyes with a black marker pen and your basic chicken corner bookmark is done!
Now have fun with the colors and make some baby chick bookmarks, hen bookmarks or even Year of the Rooster Corner Bookmarks! So fun!
