DIY Cat Corner Bookmarks

Cat Corner Bookmarks

Don’t you hate when people turn down the corner of the pages to mark their place? Well, you can avoid that cat-astrophe with these simple Cat origami bookmarks.

But that’s not their only use!

They are an awesome incentive that will get your kids interested in books (as they might want to use them ASAP) and are a fun and easy paper craft for all ages.

Younger children may need a little extra help to line up their bookmarks precisely, but from my experience, they don’t really mind if they end up not perfect.

Also, this craft doesn’t require many materials. And to make it easier, you can download the template here. Get it now!

How to make a paper Cat Bookmark

As always, here is a video tutorial to make these bookmarks.

If you prefer written instructions, just keep scrolling.



1. Download and print the black cat template on plain white paper. Then, cut out the square and the ears.

Avoid using cardstock as it may be too thick to fold.

2. Fold the square in half diagonally. Make sure that both parts of the cat stay on the top of the triangle.

3. Flip the triangle over and fold each outer corner to the center top.

4. Open the corners again and fold the top layer of the triangle down to create a pocket.
