With my continued love for Paper Crafts we have another Easy Origami for Kids project for you today. The Origami Butterfly Bookmark Corner! Now this isn’t like our normal Corner Bookmark Designs – which usually require some embellishments and decorations, but more of a “classic” Origami Pattern! Start off with the correct paper size and then no cutting or decorating is required to make this gorgeous Paper Butterfly Bookmark! Learn how to make an origami bookmark today!
I saw this great pattern over on Dynamite Crafts and thought you would enjoy it too! We made our Paper Butterflies using “plain” two toned origami paper (more info on that in the materials section), but these origami bookmarks would also look gorgeous in pretty patterned origami paper with a plain back.
You may also like or Origami Bookmark Corner based butterflies here – they require a little cutting and decorating!

How to make an Origami Butterfly Bookmark Corner
When it comes to Origami – even EASY origami, I do feel that video instructions show the how to in the best possible way. I do feel that this paper butterfly origami is relatively easy.. BUT that the video does the craft a little more just. So on this occassion, I am afraid I do not have the step by step photo instructions that I normally share! I do hope you find the video sufficient.
I hope you enjoyed our Origami Butterfly bookmark video! My daughter has been making these butterflies like crazy now. Do remember to PAUSE the video and take your time over each step. This is key for all beginners having a go at Origami!
I think this butterfly bookmarks are great all year around, but are particularly lovely as part of our Easter Origami Craft collection – with lots more lovely ideas to browse and inspire you!
