This tiny origami bookmark is really easy to make and doesn’t fall off the page when you open your book! Only the corner of the page is obscured by the bookmark, so you can keep the bookmark in place while you read. These would be great to mark several pages of a reference book – it’s a nice (and attractive) alternative to sticky note markers!

You will need one square of origami paper per bookmark. I use 2″ squares and 3″ squares for my bookmarks; both work well and are easy to fold.
Note: As with all origami, this works best if you strongly crease each fold, so the bookmark will lie as flat as possible. You can do this with a bone folder, or just by running your thumbnail along the crease of each fold before moving on to the next step.
Slip the triangle over the corner of a page in your book to mark your page 🙂
