It was spring clean day today in Duckblue.ie and I found all sorts of scrap paper and old envelopes that were scuffed or creased. So we decided we would use these envelopes to create fun, crazy bookmarks. So much fun!

Step 1:

Get your envelope and draw a diagonal line across the corner making a triangle shape. Then cut along this line creating your corner pocket.

Open out the rest of the envelope and place the triangle pocket in the corner. Then draw a square on top of the base envelope and cut it out to create an insert for your pocket. Glue the back of it and place it into the pocket. This gives it more strength to hold in a book.
