How to make a Giraffe Bookmark Corner
Our sweet little giraffe corner bookmark is made using the basic Origami Bookmark Corner shape. We then trimmed a little, added on some details and hey presto, to have a wonderful Giraffe. The video, as always shows you how quick, simple and easy it is to make her!
How to make a basic bookmark corner:
Time needed: 5 minutes.
Making a corner bookmark is SUPER easy. We have more detailed instructions with step by step photos here. Or, as mentioned watch the videos below. The basic bookmark only takes minutes to make. You can then take your time over decorating them into pokemon bookmarks.
Fold the square paper across the diagonal to make a triangle
Rotate to bring the long edge parallel, then bring the right corner up to meet the top corner.
Repeat with the corner. You should now have a smaller diamond with a line down the middle.
Open up the last two folds.
Folds down the top corner – only take one sheet of paper.
Bring the right corner back up and fold into the flap.
Repeat with the left corner.
Now you have your basic corner bookmarks, learn how to turn them into your Giraffe Bookmarks! Love.
