And, that's not even the fanciest. I love the way they tuck a bookmark into some of the origami packages. The squares of paper shown above are pretty small, maybe 4" x 4", at most. I decided to go with that size because I didn't want to break into the larger and more elaborate package. Here's my first attempt at folding a corner bookmark:
I love it! Rob of Rob Around Books told me he cuts the corners off envelopes to make his own "cheap and plentiful" corner bookmarks. And, Marie of The Boston Bibliophile suggested reinforcing the long end of the bookmark (before folding) with a 1/4" strip of light cardboard or scrapbook paper. I love it that I have such clever friends!

I noticed these on Facebook. I like them! I'm not sure they'd hold up against my kitty. She's a book nibbler.ReplyDelete
Oh, dear, a book nibbler. Good thing you love her. :) They do stay in very well, so it might be hard for kitty to pull one off the corner, actually. I even picked up the book and shook it when a friend asked if they stay in as well as claimed.Delete
Very cute! Isn't origami paper beautiful? So many designs and such beautiful colors.ReplyDelete
Yes, absolutely. I adore origami paper. The options are endless!Delete
