If you don’t know what I am talking about.. then you have seriously missed out.. and it is hight time you get a copy of this marvellous movie (US/ UK affilaite links, you are welcome!).

Totoro Bookmark corner step by step instructions
Begin by making a basic Origami Bookmark in yellow. We have Origami Bookmark Step by Step Instructions (including photos) or check our handy Totoro Corner Bookmark video above!
Once you have your basic corner bookmark in the colour and size you desire – grey for Totoro and blue and white for his friends… shape the top of the bookmark (snip a little off).
Cut out some Totoro ears and glue one.
Next cut out some white eyes and glue on (you can use a hole punch for these too?)
Now it is time for the white “tummy” part of Toroto. Cut a quarter of a circle out (using your bookmark as a guide).
Glue in place and add details with a pen.
Repeat for the different characters.
Your adorable Totoro Bookmark Corner + friends is finished!
