How to Make a Corner Vegetable Bookmark
Let’s start by making the tomato.
First, use the PDF template to cut out the pieces for the tomato. Use red and green craft paper.
Now take the green piece (the sepal) and glue it on the top middle part of the tomato.
Now use a red marker pen to draw some details on the tomato.
How to make Vegetable Book Marks
Take an origami Craft paper (5inched x 5inches).
Place it diagonally on the surface.
Take the top point of the origami paper and bring it downwards to the bottom point. Fold it right in the middle.
Make sure the edges match perfectly.
This will create a triangular shape.
Now take the left and right points of the paper triangle.
Bring both points downwards to the bottom point.
Now unfold the left and right sides once.
Take the upper flap from the bottom and fold it upwards along with the two diagonal creases.
Now fold back the left and right points like previously.
Tuck in both sides on the upper pocket to finish off the bookmark.
Finish it off by gluing the vegetables on the bookmark.
