Summer is here, and with it comes a big list of books to read during the holidays.
Naturally, not all kids find that exciting. But there are many things you can try to encourage some summer reading.
Ideas like starting a Summer Reading Challenge, having a reading picnic outdoors, or making a fun craft like this, can help your kids pick up some books.
In this post, I will teach you how to make a Strawberry Corner Bookmark using our printable templates (that you can get at the end of this post 😉).
They are super easy to make and perfect for kids of almost all ages, as the only skills required are cutting, folding, and gluing.
If you are working with young kids, you can do the cutting for them.
We love this craft because it can actually interact with the books and features some cute berries. Who doesn’t like them, right?
You can use them as a last day of school craft, include the template with your students’ reading list, or simply craft them at home when your kids are bored.

How to Make a Strawberry Corner Bookmark
Making these strawberry bookmarks is super easy with our printable templates.
There are two versions included: just the fruit and a kawaii version of it.
Just pick your favorite and start folding following the step-by-step instructions outlined below.
If you have never made a basic origami bookmark before and are a little confused, it may be better for you to start with the video tutorial. You can find it right under the written instructions.
Let’s get into it!
To make these cute bookmarks, all you need is:
- Strawberry bookmark templates (Get them here or at the end of this post)
- Regular white paper
Strawberry Bookmark Instructions
- Select your template and print it on regular white paper. Then, cut out the square.
- Fold the square in half diagonally.
- With the help of a ruler, fold along the left and right edges of the strawberry and unfold them.
- Flip your bookmark over to make the berry face down and bring the left and right corners to the top corner.
- Unfold the corners.
- Fold the top layer down to the bottom of the triangle to create a pocket.
- Fold the left and right corners into the pocket.
- Trim the white parts around your berry.
- Cut the leaves from the template and glue them on top of your strawberry.
Your berry special bookmark is ready to mark your pages!
