I first created this Goat Bookmark Corner in order to complete our Chinese Zodiac Bookmark collection.
But it is also perfect for annoying who, well, LOVES Goats…. but also is looking for a Billy Goat Gruff Craft or for some Farm Animal Crafts! Another one to add to our extensive Corner Bookmark collection!
To make your Goat Bookmark Corner, you will need:
- White square paper (20 x 20cm ish is nice, but any size will do)
- Paper scraps in white, grey, yellow/ beige – whatever you have
- Black Pen
- Glue stick
How to make your Billy Goat Craft paper bookmark corner
As always begin by making your classic origami bookmark corner in white (or grey or brown!).
Once you have made your bookmark corner, it is time to decorate!
To embellish your bookmark as a goat, you will need to:
- 2 horns (think of banana shapes with the ends cut off)
- two ears
- two eyes
- one beard in a contrasting colour
- one nose & mouth – you may find it easier to draw this on with a pen than cut it out
Assembling your Goat Corner Bookmark:
You will now need to trim off approximately 1/4 of your bookmark corner. Be mindful of which side you cut – as it will influence which way your goat will face.
Flip the origami bookmark corner, so you are now decorating the back and your shape is in portrait (long way up).
Glue on your goat’s goaty and nose part.
Add details to the horns in pen.
Now it is time to have some fun with those eyes! See how the position of them totally changes the character of your Billy Goat Gruff.
Glue down the eyes and horns and you are done!
