Draw an eye and nose on one triangle with a black marker.  Next, cut fringe from a few pieces of colorful cardstock and use glue dots to attach them to the bookmark. These pieces create a colorful rainbow unicorn mane.  Finally, add an ear and gold horn to complete the look.

This unicorn corner bookmark comes together in minutes and is really fun to make.  Kids can make their own and add special touches.  An adult may need to help fold the corner bookmark, but once that is complete the decoration possibilities are endless.  

This is an ideal project for a kids group like Girl Scouts or a class art project. Teach kids how to do the basic fold, them let them use their imaginations to create a character.

If unicorns aren’t your thing, use this technique to make a basic corner bookmark and turn it into any creature you like!
