Our Summer of Reading continues, with, yes you guessed it, another Corner Bookmark Design!! Well you can never have too many books and you can never have too many bookmarks (and if you do have too many bookmarks.. then why not sell them to friends and family – my kids did and raised enough money for their own pet gerbils as well as a little for the WWF! Hooray!). Today’s bookmark is another Sea Animal Bookmark or “under the sea” bookmark. Again, it is an “old bookmark” that I created on YouTube a while ago: The Paper Whale Corner Bookmark Design!
This cute little Whale Bookmark joins the ranks of other Sea Creature Bookmarks and Under the Sea Bookmark Designs, including:
- Dolphin Corner Bookmark
- Sea Turtle Corner Bookmark
- Nemo Corner Bookmark
- Dory Corner Bookmark
- Whale Corner Bookmark
Which all form part of our Summer Corner Bookmark Designs!
If you love WHALES.. you may also want to have a go at these adorable ( and yes EASY) Origami Whales too:
Easy Whale Corner Bookmark – Materials
- Blue piece of square paper (we cut down A4 into 2 squares of approximately 15 x 15cm – but any size is fine!)
- Some scraps of white paper for the Whale’s eyes and body
- Black pen for the whale’s details
- Glue stick
How to make a Corner Bookmark Whale
As mentioned in the video below, this cute little paper whale bookmark was invented by my daughter a couple of years ago. I can’t believe it has taken me so long to share this Corner Bookmark Design with you!! But I hope you enjoy it today regardless! So to begin with.. do watch the Easy Whale Origami Bookmark video or hope below for some written instructions.
Easy Whale Origami Bookmark Design Step By Step Instructions
Begin by making a basic Origami Bookmark in blue. We have Origami Bookmark Step by Step Instructions (including photos) or check our handy Whale Corner Bookmark video above!
Once you have made the basic Origami Bookmark, it is time to shape it and decorate it!
Shape your Whale Bookmark
Round off the bottom of the bookmark – it is almost a semi circle, with a little tail win at the end.
Then round off the sides (and keep the “bits”) as well as the top of the Whale’s head.
The “bits” you saved are JUST big enough to cut two Whale fins…
Cut your Whale’s Details
Cut our some whale eyes – you can have lots of fun, adding different types of yes – making them look in different directions.
And a big white semi circle in white for the whale’s body or teeth – depending on how you see it.
Add black details in pen.
Glue your Paper Whale Bookmark Together
Now simply position your eyes, fins and “under belly” and glue down.
Your Whale Bookmark is FINISHED!!! YAY!
