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
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!
