2) Unicorn Bookmark Tutorial
Let's start the origami unicorn bookmark tutorial ! Just follow the instructions and you should be able to do it without any problems.
Print out the template sheet and cut out each shape following the contours. Take the large square and place it on a flat surface. Fold the square in half on its diagonal.
Take the corner on the open part of the triangle and fold it down so that the top of the small triangle coincides with the bottom of the large triangle. You probably know the famous video game series The Legend of Zelda ? Well, you have to get a Triforce at this point ! In all, there are now 4 small triangles.
Fold the right side upwards. The top of the small triangle on the right must now coincide with the top of the small triangle at the top.
Do the same with the small triangle on the left.
Take one of the two triangles and tuck it into the inside pocket by folding it in half.
Do the same with the other side.
We will now use all the other models to decorate our unicorn bookmark ! Put your medium thick colored cardboard papers under the printed sheet and cut out the shapes. Use red, orange and pink for the flowers, green for the leaves and yellow for the center of the flowers.
Assemble the flowers by sticking their different parts on top of each other.
Then take your thickest card stock and cut out the parts of the ears and the horn.
Glue the inside of the ears to the outside, as shown in the picture.
Is it good ? All set ? Then put all the pieces together and let's start assembling the unicorn !
Stick the unicorn's horn and ears behind the bookmark.
Then glue the flowers over the ears and the horn. Use the black marker to make the eyes of the unicorn.
Congratulations, now you know how to make a unicorn paper bookmark 👍 ! You can now put it on the corner of the page of the book where you stopped.
