How to Make

  1. Take a sheet of beige paper and fold it diagonally, then trim off the end so that you’re left with a square piece of paper.
  2. Unfold the paper and fold it diagonally the other way. Keep it folded with the long edge at the bottom and fold down the top so that the point meets the bottom edge.
  3. Fold in the two edges so that the points meet in the centre. Then unfold them and fold them upwards so that the points meet at the top.
  4. Tuck the two edges downwards into the pocket that you’ve created. Then turn it over and also fold the top edge downwards into the pocket.
  5. Cut out two ear shapes from the same shade of beige paper and then cut out two inner ear shapes from a sheet of light pink paper and stick them onto the two ears. Then stick the ears to the corner bookmark on the long edge.
  6. Take a sheet of brown paper and cut out a rounded spiky shape from the corner of the paper. Then slide it into the pocket so the spiky bit pokes out the top and stick it into place. Use a brown pen to draw on some spikes.
  7. Stick two wiggle eyes to the front of the corner bookmark and use a black pen to draw on the nose at the point.

Top Tip

Use paper for this origami bookmark instead of card to make it easier when folding the shape together.
