Corner Bookmark with Origami Flower Dangle

Pin It Now! Today I rediscovered something about myself that I've forgotten.  You might feel this way, too.  I make cards because #1, first and foremost, I love to play with paper!  The #2 reason I make cards is because they're thoughtful and wonderful extensions of myself that I hope will brighten someone's day. 

I think these fit both bills...

I came across a link on Tip Junkie's blog, and stopped dead in my tracks when I saw the first bookmark.  I had to try Sandy's Kusudama fold right away. 

Here was my first one...

Then I couldn't stop!  I had to try it with all of my new papers!

Different trims for each one...buttons, punches, bling...

And just like that, I have a beautiful half dozen Christmas or birthday gifts, ready to pair with a good book. 
Fun!  Give it a try.

Have a blessed & creative day! Erika.


  1. Great idea for Christmas gifts ... thanks for the links to directions too!
    Cheers, Karen

  2. They look absolutely beautiful and each one a unique bookmark. I'm so happy that you tried kusudama flower folding and enjoyed working with the technique

  3. Hi Erica,

    I am so happy I found you. I wanted to make some of these corner bookmarks so I did a Google search and it led me here. I am loving what I see... I just had to become a follower and sign up for your Feedburner email.

    I'll be back for another visit soon! :)
