Simple Trick To Make Your Own Origami Bookmarks

Your cat has started to doubt your loyalty what with the number of dog-eared pages in all your books; you’re sick of converting page numbers such as 141 and 3270 into mnemonics like “tired” and “mongoose.” Does this sound like you?

Fret no more! Using this simple German paper folding technique, you can create an origami bookmark that has no trace of dogs. Not convinced? Listen to what this twitter user had to say:

“My mom made this bookmark. It doesn’t stick out or slip, and I highly recommend it lol. You can make it easily with just some notebook paper or something.”

Mr Author, I think you meant Japanese paper folding technique known as origami, not German. When did they start folding papers? :P

I admit, I wrote that comment figuring that most people wouldn't read it. However, it's technically true: prior to the importing of Friedrich Froebel's paper folding techniques into Japan, origami was usually cut. The ban on cutting paper is directly linked to him, and therefore, you could say that modern origami is a German invention!
