To make these cute bat corner bookmarks you will need:
- Paper and printer
- Bat Bookmark Printable Template (Get it here or at the end of the post)
- Print and cut the bat bookmark template on regular white paper.
- Fold the square in half diagonally, as shown below.
- Now you will have a triangle. Flip it over, leaving the bat’s face down.
- Fold the left and right corners towards the top of the triangle. Unfold them.
- Bring the top layer of the triangle to the bottom. This will create some sort of pocket.
- Tuck in the right corner into the pocket.
- Repeat with the left corner.
- Flip your bookmark over. Cut out the top of the bat’s head (white part).
- Glue the bat wings behind your bookmark. Don’t hesitate to glue them in different positions to have unique bats.
Your bat is ready to fly into your favorite book!
Tip: If you are struggling to fit the bookmarks into a book, it may be because of the position of the wings. To fix it, simply make some cuts on the back, as shown below.
