Easy Owl Origami Bookmark Design

| |

Many moons ago our Corner Bookmark Design obession started with the simple and oh so popular Monster Corner Bookmark. At the time, I photographed the Monster Bookmark Corner with an Owl Bookmark.. but never actually provided separate instructions for the paper owl… I thought it was time, that I dedicated at whole post to just the lovely owl!!!!! Yay. So finally.. today we make an Easy Origami Bookmark Owl Design – based on the classic square Origami Bookmark that we now know so well. This is a perfect addition to our collection of Fall Corner Bookmark Designs – including some great Halloween Bookmark Corners! I do hope that you agree with me!

These Paper Owl Bookmarks are perfect for all DIY Owl Craft lovers!
