As a crafty person, I love to get crafty with my kids.  So this March Break, I'm going to share with you a craft a day that you can do with your kids and everyone can have a lot of fun.

Today we're starting off easy with some adorable corner bookmarks.  When my 9-year-old son Charlie got started making these, he didn't want to stop!

 STEP ONE:  Start by cutting a piece of patterned paper into a square.  I cut mine at 3x3.



STEP TWO:  Score two diagonal lines from corner to corner.



STEP THREE:  Cut along the lines to remove one triangle from the square and fold along the score lines.



STEP FOUR:  Fold in one triangle and put adhesive on the outside.  Fold over other triangle and secure.  You'll end up with a triangle-shaped pocket like this.



STEP FIVE:  Decorate as desired.  Do something simple, like adding shimmer trim, or be more creative!



Then use it in your favourite book.



You can have lots of fun with these.  Use some stamps and embellishments to make them pretty.  They would make a great Mother's Day gift! Just be careful not to make your decorations too "thick".  You still want to make sure the book closes nicely.




Or let the kids go crazy and make bookmark monsters.



And here's my special helper having fun making his bookmarks.



Have fun making today's March Break craft!  Then maybe head to the library to pick up some books to use the bookmarks in.  :)
