Just because school is nearing it’s end doesn’t mean that our weekly tutorial lineup is taking the summer off. Today we have a perfectly timed tutorial for those that love to get their book reading on in the summer. Stephanie Umpleby shows us how to make darling corner bookmarks using those scraps of paper that we all have laying around.

Many of you saw my corner bookmarks on the April Blog Hop, and I know some of you are wondering how to make your own. Well, look no further!  Here are the simple instructions to making your own.

1. Start with a square piece of cardstock – somewhere between 3×3 and 4×4.  I used solid cardstock, but you can use anything you have.

2. Mark the middle of three sides.

3. Score diagonal lines connecting the marks.

4. Fold along the score lines.

5. Start decorating! You can either start with a triangular piece of paper the size of your “roof” or just glue onto the “roof” like I did. Just make sure you can still slide some paper between the back and the “roof” for the bookmark to work. You can also decorate the bottom and the back. Let your imagination take you away!

6. Use it!


I am using this one in my daughter’s Phonics workbook. The quote will hopefully remind me that teaching her to read is one of the most important things I can do.

Here is the link to the ones I made using Miss Caroline as part of the blog hop.
