DIY bookmarks for books: 11 ideas
Admit it, you also constantly paw books with unnecessary notes, advertising flyers or old calendars? And then they forever fall out, and poor printing is printed on the pages? Why all these problems, if you can make funny bookmarks out of paper with your own hands for books in just a few minutes. We tell!
1. Bookmark with voluminous colors of paper
For such a simple but very bright bookmark, you need as much thick multi-colored paper as possible. Cut a thin rectangle for the base from it, paste the edges with a tape tape a few tones darker and extend a narrow ribbon. To make the flowers look more interesting and livelier, lay out each of them from at least three layers glued only in the center.
2. The tab "Variegated Worms"
If you have a lot of unnecessary scraps of colored paper, serpentine or teip - make a bookmark for the book in the form of a motley cheerful worm. Draw a contour on thick paper and randomly glue it with colorful stripes, and then carefully cut it out. Make a worm eye and a contrasting colored substrate with a ribbon.
3. Origami bookmark "Heart"
Using the folds, divide the paper square into four identical parts. Turn the bottom to the center, turn the sheet, turn the corners, turn it over again and raise the top. On the reverse side, straighten the bends and form from each vertex of the heart. In the last turn, bend back the excess “tails” or even fix them on glue.
4. Bookmark from paper “Cute cats”
Such seals are best obtained from multi-colored sticker paper, because it is thick and double-sided. Use a sharp clerical knife to cut the legs, which will hold on to the page. Cut out the ears, draw with felt-tip pens a muzzle, fingers, claws and other details.
5. Shortcut bookmark
To make a beautiful bookmark in the form of a shortcut, cut out a blank booklet with a window from a thick sheet of paper. Glue a piece of wrapping paper or a bright sticker in it, fold the bookmark and extend the ribbon. By the same principle, you can make cards or small pendants with wishes for gifts.
6. Origami bookmark for books "Monster"
To make an origami bookmark for books in the form of a funny monster, fold according to the scheme a corner from a thick double-sided sheet of paper. Take the brightest or most unusual shades - and it will turn out even more interesting. Cut out eyes, teeth and tongue separately, and draw the remaining details. It is convenient to put such a bookmark on the corner of the page - it will definitely not fall out and will not be lost.
7. “Big-eyed” bookmarks
This is another variation of fancy paper bookmarks in the form of fantastic creatures. Decorate them with eyes for crafts - and the children will be delighted. Instead of the usual ribbon, insert fancy horns and ears of wire or a metallized cord.
8. Paper tab “Tie”
To make such a wicker bookmark for books, you need four strips of thick paper in different colors. Vary the width and length, depending on the result you want to get. Glue the strips along the corner one on the other and whip the bookmark with a spikelet until you reach the end.
9. Origami bookmark "Koala"
A bookmark made of paper in the form of a koala differs from the usual corner by the folding technique, and it is worn not on the corner, but on the page as a whole, like a paper clip. A piece of wrapping paper with a white inside that will just go to your ears is perfect. Form a rhombus from the square, tuck the sides and the bottom corner, unfold the workpiece and lower the “tail” of the paper clip back.
10. Heart-shaped corner bookmarks
For such a corner bookmark, you do not even need to master the origami technique - just prepare a stencil according to the template in the diagram. Fold the part so that the halves of the heart come together.
To keep them on their own, you can make small cuts. Seal the joint with small multi-colored hearts on top, paint or decorate with colorful stickers.
11. Bookmark from paper “Hedgehog”
To make such a bookmark with your own hands, bend the paper rhombus in half, lower one vertex of the triangle and fit the sides to it. Spread them up and turn the corners inward to get a pocket for the page. From another single-layer triangle, make hedgehog needles and glue in the middle. It remains only to draw or glue the muzzle and nose.
