Washi Tape Corner Bookmark

washi tape corner bookmark

Happy Earth Day! Today, after much “Pinspiration,” I created my first corner bookmark! The advantage of a corner bookmark is that it does not stick out of books, making it less easily bent and torn. Creating the bookmark is simple and quick. Of course, it’s green and brown, in honor of our fantastic Earth!

Corner bookmark instructions

Materials:

6″ by 6″ piece of cardstock

Pencil

Scissors

Ruler

Glue

Paintbrush

Washi tape

1. In pencil, lightly divide the cardstock into four equal squares (I darkened the lines in the picture to make it easier to see.)

2. Divide two opposite squares diagonally, as the picture shows.

3. Cut off two outer triangles and one square. Again, use the picture for reference.

4. Fold both triangles on top of the square. Using the paintbrush, spread a thin layer of glue over only the top of the bottom triangle. Then, press the top triangle over the bottom triangle. Don’t glue the square!

5. Cover in washi tape.

That’s all! If one bookmark just isn’t enough, try making a Duct Tape Fall Bookmark or the “It’s Rough” Duct Tape Bookmark. If you prefer reading on your kindle, make sure your e-reader has a stylish case!

Also, you should definitely check out this post on Caution District for tips on making Earth a cleaner planet.

Have a great day 🙂

  1. So simple, but it looks great! Much better than just using a random piece of scrap card or paper, which is what I do most of the time. I bought my mum a load of washi tape a while ago. We didn’t really know what to use it for but your blog has some great inspiration 🙂

  2. This is such a creative way to hold your page! Really helpful, this is a great post. And thank you for visiting my blog too! 🙂

  3. very cool ideas here–I heard about some duct tape projects from my son and his class–they would LOVE this site 🙂
