In a previous post, I had made a corner origami bookmark but in today’s tutorial, we are going to make different types of bookmarks that you guys definitely like. Also if you are a student you can make it very easily it hardly takes 2 or 3 minutes in making. You don’t need to set aside time to make it. Let’s start the tutorial on how to make bookmark.
In today’s tutorial, we are going to make two different types of bookmarks. Let’s start with 1st method but starting this let’s collect the material required for making a bookmark.
- Hard sheet
- Colored or designed tape
Method 1 of How to make bookmark
STEP 1- CHOOSE THE PERFECT PAPER
In the first step, you have to choose a perfect sheet of paper for Making a bookmark. Make sure that the sheet you are taking for making the bookmark is thicker than a normal sheet. If we take a normal sheet it easily gets tier as they are very thin
STEP 2- CUT THE BOOKMARK
Now cut the rectangular shape from that sheet to make a bookmark. You can take any measurements to make the rectangle. Now take a designed tape and paste it on that rectangular-shaped bookmark. Make sure that that tape is wider than the regular tape as that it easily covers the bookmark in one layer. If you choose regular-sized tape you have to do two rounds to totally cover the sheet. Cover the bookmark from both sides. Front as well as back.
STEP 3- GIVE YOUR BOOKMARK A SHAPE.
And here your bookmark is almost ready. Just cut the ends of your bookmark in your favorites choice. Just like I did. You can cut it round or triangle
HERE YOUR BOOKMARK IS NOW READY
If you want you can add a thread on the top of the bookmark otherwise your bookmark is ready to use. But I am adding threads. Punch a hole on top of it tie a thread in it and your bookmark is ready I am going to tie the thread in a different way. I just put 3 different colors of thread and start making a braid and add glue at ends or you can fix it by tying them together. And your bookmark is now completely ready. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial on how to make bookmark let’s move to the next method of making a bookmark
METHOD 2 OF HOW TO MAKE BOOKMARK
The second bookmark is also very easy and interesting in making and for making this bookmark you only need a strip of colorful sheet and glue.
STEP 1- CUT OUT THE STRIPS
Take-Two craft sheets of different colors. You can choose your favorite color to make a bookmark. Now a two-strip if each color. The measurements of the strip are 1×30cm but you can take measurements of your choice. Here I am taking the leftover sheets that are usually of no use. I am taking yellow and black color I think it is the best combination
STEP 2- PASTE IT TOGETHER AND START FOLDING
First, paste the same color strip together by making the L shape. I am taking the yellow strip first. Next, take one black trip and paste it on the strip that you recently posted. Now take another black strip and paste it on the opposite side again making an L shape.
Now rotate the strip as shown in the image and start folding. First, fold the right yellow strip to the left side then fold the left yellow strip to the right side. Now take the right black strip to the left side then the left black strip to the right side.
Now repeat this step until you reach to end. Here you can clearly see my last fold is yellow. Paste them together and cut out the remaining black strip and paste it with glue so that it get secure.
STEP 3- ADD A STRING OR THREAD
Now punch a hole on the top of the bookmark with the help of campus you can also use a pen or pencil to make a hole. Now take a thread tie its ends together and pass it from the hole and tie it to the bookmark. And here your bookmark is ready to use. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial on how to make bookmark.
