How to make the Rocket Corner Bookmark:

1. Let’s make a traditional origami corner bookmark for the base. You can follow along with the pictures or grab the instructions HERE on Red Ted Art’s super easy tutorial. Cut out a square paper from craft paper of any color you like. The square should be at least 4 inches x 4 inches.

2. Fold the square paper into half diagonally, from one corner to the opposite corner. You now have a triangle.

3. Place the triangle so the fold is at the bottom. Fold the top layer of the triangle downwards, so that the corner meets the folded base. This will form a pocket between the layers.

4. Now fold the bottom right corner of the triangle upwards along the line created by the fold in the previous step. Tuck the top end of this into the pocket created in step 3.

  1. Hi,
    The rocket corner book mark is very cute and your instructions refer to a template with 2 sizes of rocket. I could not locate that – just tons of fake PDF click ads! Was there a template I missed? Thanks so much!

  2. I am a library assistant and would love to include your template in our weekly craft video as well as a reference to
    your website. Would this be acceptable use?
    Thank you!
