geez, I haven't posted to Craftster in soooo long!  I recently finished my graduate studies - that is, until I start another degree. 

Anyhoo, I recently learned how to make a bookmark from the origami water bomb base.  Once I got the hang of it, I figured you could make book marks from the square base as well... and then I started to improvise and well... here's what came of it. 

If you'd like to learn how to make these, check out the following links:

Awesome bookmarks! I love the large green one in the second picture. Any hints for that one? I can't figure it out  Undecided

I just kind of improvised on these so I don't have videos on how to make each variation -  Undecided sorry! I can tell you that green one was made from the square base. If you watch the square base video from about minute 4:40 to 5:50, it'll give you an idea of how I made the large point of the green book mark.  Let me know if that's enough to get you started... if not, I might be able to make a quick video this weekend to show in more detail.   Smiley

These are great!  I never have enough bookmarks, 'cause I lose them or leave them in books.  I usually fold a dozen or so at a time.  Now I have some new ideas to try.   Cheesy

I'm not a square peg - I'm polyhedral!

My wife has put all but one of the book marks in the pics to use already... lol.  I think I'll make more of the small ones for her this weekend.
