We love Fox Crafts! Such a fun theme for the Autumn months ahead. Do you or your kids LOVE to read? Do you always have a book or several on the go? Or maybe you love to read, but simply don’t have the time.. and when you finally get back to your book, you have lost your place or your book mark has fallen out. Well today, we have some super cute and delightful little FOX BOOKMARKS to share with you.
They are of the basic Origami Bookmark variety, which are hugely popular, as they look lovely when in the book AND personally, I find they are less likely to fall out. So have these adorable little foxes smiling up at you whilst you settle down for a cozy read. They are easy to make and could even be sold for a small amount at a school fair? The perfect Autumn Craft for kids and Woodland creature lovers too! We have many more Corner Bookmarks for you to browse too!! Over 37 designs and counting…. or just take a look at this great subset of Fall Corner Bookmark Designs!
Aren’t they simply wonderful?
I love how my Instagram reader, saw these and then came up with their own BADGER CORNER BOOKMARK – he is ADORABLE.

How to make a fox corner bookmark step by step instructions
We begin with the classic and super simple Origami Bookmark Corner! Take an orange piece of origami paper to make your fox. You will also need some scrap pieces of white paper.
Begin by making your bookmark corner- step by step instructions:
First you will need to make a square out of your paper. Corner bookmarks need squares of paper, but here we show you how to create that perfect square!!
- Take your A5 sheet of paper and fold over one corner to create a triangle.
- Cut off the excess and rotate your triangle so the long edge is at the bottom and the right angle faces up. Make sure the top of the triangle is looking up and you have the long edge running perpendicular.
- Fold the lower right corner up to meet the top right angled corner.
- Repeat for the left side.
- Fold these two back open.
- Flip down ONE of the top sheets and crease.
- Now fold the flaps you created back up and tuck INTO your bookmark.
- Repeat for the other side
- Congratulations, you have just created your basic Origami Corner Bookmark!
Decorate the Bookmark as a Fox
The fox’s ears:
First you will need to bring the inside flap back up. And now fold the top right corner down – make a neat fold to make an ear.
Repeat for the other side. Make sure the folds match up!
Tuck the ears back “in” and you have your basic fox shape. The video shows how to make the ears REALLY well 🙂
Add some black lines to create the ear feature.
The fox’s facial features:
Then cut out two rounded shapes from your scrap pieces of paper in white. These are like the “tops” snipped off a circle. Cut both shapes at the same time, so they are symmetrical.
Glue in place.
Add eyes and a little black heart nose and your fox corner bookmark is finished!
