This cute summer paper craft for fruit slice corner bookmarks is so much fun! These sweet DIY bookmarks are perfect for summer reading.
Bookmarks can be expensive things, especially when you tend to lose them often. Standard shaped bookmarks get pretty boring too.
Try making your own bookmarks – with just a square of paper and a little origami, you can make your own vibrant and fun bookmarks that fit right over the corner of your page.
