How to make a Ladybug Corner Bookmark
Take an origami craft paper.
Place it diagonally.
Bring the left corner towards the right corner, and fold it in the middle.
This will create a triangular shape.
Then fold the triangular shape right on the middle vertically.
And then open up the fold, this will create a straight crease on the middle.
Take the upper flap of the triangle, and bring it upwards to the middle of the triangle’s base.
Fold it there.
Take the right corner and bring it downwards to the bottom point of the triangle.
Similarly, bring the left corner downwards and olf it there.
This will create a diamond shape.
Fold up both corners inside the pocket we created
Cut out the pieces for the ladybug using the PDF templates.
Begin by printing out the PDF. You can color the body of the ladybug red/purple or any color you like. Then color the spots and head black.
First, glue the black piece on one corner of the bookmark.
Then glue the red piece on the bottom side of the bookmark, slightly covering the black piece.
Glue on the ladybug’s spots on the red part of the bookmark.
Finish it off by glueing the eyes over the black part.
