Corner Bookmark

Here's an adorable way to make a cute bookmark. These bookmarks use clever folding and then allow the user to insert the page they are working on for quick access later. This example uses one of the Sweet Pea Pals from Sweet Pea Stamps. You can access their Website by clicking the Pink Banner in the Right hand column. Thanks to Pat Martin for the wonderful idea!

Here's the folding pattern:
I use patterned paper to create the bookmarks because it is easy to fold. Take a square piece of patterned paper (in my sample it was 5 inches); Lay it out flat, patterned side DOWN as in picture 1. Take corner D and fold the paper diagonally so that corners A and D are together as shown in picture 2; Now add adhesive to half the triangle (the area shown in grey) and fold corner C on top of corner B. You should now have a triangle that is glued in the center but still has an opening allowing the page to slip inside.

Project Materials:
Inspiration (Pat Martin); Paper (DCWV, Bazzill); Stamp (Sweet Pea Stamps); Ink (Versafine); Color (Derwent Inktense); Embellishment (my momenta flat baubbles);
