I love making corner bookmarks with my nieces and nephews, and this vampire version is super fun with its little bat wings. This is a great craft for all ages, so follow along to fold your way into making this book and magazine placeholder!
Total Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 1 bookmark
- white paper
- black paper
- red paper
- googly eyes
- Cut your white paper so it's a perfect square, at least 6" x 6".
- Fold the square in half, into a triangle.
- Fold down the front layer of the triangle so it touches the bottom in the center.
- Fold the left and right corners inwards.
- Unfold them then fold them upwards.
- Tuck the upwards flaps into the pocket you created.
- Turn it upside down.
- To make the vampire's hair, cut a triangle from your black paper to match the upper corner.
- Cut 2 pieces out of it so it looks like a widow's peak.
- Glue the hair onto the top portion.
- Fold a black piece of paper in half then cut out a wing shape.
- Unfold the paper.
- Cut the paper in half at the fold. This creates 2 identical wings.
- Glue them onto the sides of the vampire from the back.
- To make the inside of the vampire's mouth, cut out a triangle from your red paper. Glue it onto the lower flap, tucking it under the upper flap just a bit.
- Glue on the googly eyes.
- For the fangs, cut out two long triangles from the leftover white paper.
- Glue them to the inside of the upper flap.
- Your vampire is read to bite some books!
- Let him at it!
