Instructions for making butterfly shaped corner bookmark:
Select different colored craft papers and trace the template patterns on them. Cut out the traced patterns using scissors. The template includes the wings of the butterfly, 1 body, 2 antennas and teardrop shapes for decorating the wings.
Grab the teardrop paper cut-outs and attach them on any one of the wings.
Step – 3:
Keeping the previous pattern on mind, similarly attach the rest of the teardrop paper cut-outs on the other wing. Also attach the antenna cut outs on the top side of the body cut-out.
Step – 4:
Attach the body pattern right on the middle of the wings. Use a black sharpie to trace a smiley face for the butterfly. You can also use pink highlighter pen to add 2 blushes on both cheeks of the butterfly.

Use an 8 x 8 inches regular paper to make an origami corner bookmark.
Step – 6:
Attach the paper butterfly on the triangle side of the origami bookmark and allow the glue to dry completely before using the bookmark.
