Fold an origami bulldog bookmark


I tried out this origami bulldog bookmark tutorial I found on YouTube. The doggie is designed by Christine Edison and demonstrated by Katrin. There's something very satisfying about taking a break from logos and brochures to fold a small square of paper into a thing!

I made the bulldog from a kraft paper envelope cut into a 5" square. The thicker stock was harder to fold, but I wanted the paper to be the same color on both sides. (If you use origami paper that has a white reverse side, you'll end up with a bit of white showing under the dog's nose.) The demonstration is easy to follow— happy folding!

Love your blog!! I'd love to know the name of the book you used in the photo. Looks like some sort of a layout guide. I'm a proofreader and I can use all the resources I can get!!

It's "Typography for Lawyers." And it's not boring if you love type! It's excellent.

Yes, hello again. Thank you for letting me use some of your designs! I absolutely love them!

I would like to use the design on a blog I have been thinking of making (it's a blog about books), but I'm not really sure that I'll make it yet.

That's a wonderful little dog! My son's school's mascot is the bulldog, so I've got to find a way to use this little gem for the school. Thanks for sharing it.

My 8yo son is planning to make bookmarks to sell (he wanted to do a lemonade stand but I told him it's too cold). Is there any sort of copyright on this bookmark that would prevent him from making them for sale?

I think it would be okay, but you could try to Google the designer and see if you can get official permission.
