Crafty Friday!

Hey guys this is Angela! This week I will be posting something craft related. Today I will be teaching you guys step by step how to make monster and other types of corner bookmarks!

 

Time:

20 min- BEGINNER

15 min- EXPERT

What you will need:

 

  • Square shape Origami paper (ANY 2 COLORS YOU LIKE)
  • Scissors
  • A glue stick
  • White scrap paper
  • A black marker

Step 1:

First, you will need 1 of the square origami paper. Then you will take the paper and turn it to any side to make it in the shape of a diamond. After that you will take the bottom corner and fold it up to the top corner to make a triangle.

Step 2:

Secondly, you will need to take the bottom right corner of the triangle and bring it to the top corner to fold. Do the same for each left and right corners. Then open the mini square back into a triangle and u will see that it has 1 square and 2 triangles to form the triangle.

Step 3:

Now from the top corner, unfold the top corner and fold it downwards to give it the same shape with a flap. As you have created 2 corner triangles on the sides of the square, take the right triangle as if you are going to bring it to the top corner but instead of doing that tuck it into the inside of the flap. Do the same for the left corner triangle. Now you have formed a pocket “The Head of The Monster”.

Step 4:

Now that you have the body created, turn the body to the way that the pocket would be facing downwards. Now, this is the part where decorating comes in. Take your scrap paper and cut out 2 mini circles of the same size. Use your black marker and draw two dots (mini circles) on the eyes you have created. Now glue the eyes on the pockets and cut out teeth for your monster. Take your second piece of origami paper and cut them a miniature square to be the mouth of your monster.

Step 5:

Finally, glue on the teeth to the inside of the pocket and glue the piece of origami paper to the inside bottom of the body and voila! Your all done! Have fun making more and more corner bookmarks.
