A few months ago, I wrote a post about bookmarks in which I lamented the fact that I own dozens of bookmarks and don’t use any of them (see inset photo–that’s a ponytail holder, friends). Well, all of that changed with a simple gift from Erica, a thoughtful and crafty blogging buddy. Apparently, she’s also an Origami master, if these bookmarks are any indication!
Behold, the most fabulous bookmarks ever! Admittedly, they don’t look like much from this vantage point…but wait until you see what they do.
Do you see the sheer genius of this design? The bookmark fits snugly on the corner of the page–a seamless bookmark. The triangle opens like a little mouth and closes around the corner of a book page. When the book is closed, the corner-hugger doesn’t jut out of the book or damage the spine. These bookmarks are my new favorite thing. I just had to share.
Oh, and I finished my first book of the ‘Off the Deep End’ Summer Reading Challenge! Only 29 more to go.
***UPDATE: Erica was kind enough to crete a diagram clearly illustrating how to create these fabulous bookmarks for us!!! Click HERE to view. Thanks, Erica!***
