Corner Bookmark ~ Mid month inspiration for Ellephantastic

Good morning, well I have come down with this horrible virus that is going about at the moment.  First my daughter had it then DH.  So I guess its my turn now, I'm feeling a little sorry for myself...:0(

Anyway, its my turn for the mid month tutorial over on Ellephantastic. I chose to do a corner bookmark. I love making these little projects as they are so quick and look fab presented in a box as a little gift. 

Don't forget that you still have time to enter into the
 and the theme this month is Anything but Square or Rectangle. 

On to my tutorial 
Craft Supplies you will need 

  • Score board and score tool (I used the Houghie board)
  • Large Scalloed edge punch (mine is 3")
  • Edge punch or border die (I used Martha Stewart doily punch)
  • Pencil
  • Paper trimmer 
  • Double sided tape and glue

Step 1
Card stock and Measurements
  • Card stock cut to 4" x 4" square (if you prefer you could make the square bigger or smaller)
  • 2x Squares cut to   2 ¾” x 2 ¾”  (cut one out of card stock and the other from your chosen design paper).
  • If you make your square bigger or smaller you will need to adjust your smaller square.  To do this just measure your diagonal score mark this will give you the size of your smaller square.
Step 2 


Mark three sides of your 4" square at 2 inches

Step 3 


Score your lines from mark to mark


Step 4


The two smaller 2 3/4" squares, cut them both diagonally to end up with two triangles 

Step 5
Use your punch or die to shape the bottom edge of the base of your bookmark.

Step 6
Using one of your design paper triangles, glue to the front.
Step 7 & 9
Measure from the bottom edge of the triangle to the top edge of your shaped border.  Cut a piece of card stock and decorate.  I used distressing inks to add some colour to my edges.  
Step 8
Glue to the front and add ribbon

Step 9
Follow step 8, this is for the back of your bookmark to hide those ribbon fringes 
Step 10


Use double sided tape to secure the two flaps at the back.  Then add the other card stock triangle to hide the gap.  Decorate with the remaining designer paper triangle 

Step 11


Add your die cut circle and scalloped edged circle and decorate.  For this bookmark I used a digital image from 


Called "New Rosaline"

Add your chosen embellies and you've finished.
