Corner Book Marker

 Hi everyone its Erin Here 
i'm here to show you how to make a Corner Book Marker 

First you need to have the following items 
craft knife 
craft punch 
double sided tape
Starting with a piece of card-stock measuring at 
4" x 4" or 10cm x 10 cm
and another measuring in at 
2 - 3/4" x 2 - 3/4 " or 7cm x 7cm 

Mark center of three side's out of four  

score along the lines to meet at the middle

on either side 
so it looks like this 

Fold the flaps over to give you a winged look like this 

go back to the smaller square 2 - 3/4" x 2 - 3/4" 
and cut it diagonally
across as shown  

 you should have something like this ???

back the smaller cut off with some backing paper 
like so ...

this is what i am using to make it all up 
couple strips of backing paper to co on the front and back 
ribbon to make a bow ( i did use another ribbon after i took this picture ) 

face the bookmark down so the flap's are facing up over 
add one half of the smaller square cut's 
from the 2 - 3/4" x 2 - 3/4"

Add the other half to the front of the bookmarker 
like so ... 

Add your ribbon first then 
using double sided tape 
stick your strip of backing paper to your bookmarker

Choose and colour your image 
then cut it a little smaller then the bookmark

Tie the ribbon into a bow 
i then stuck the image to another circle 
and using other die cuts to make it a little bit more special 

and here she is sitting in her corner 

Hope this helps you 
if you need any help please just give me a nudge 

Hugs Erin
