Step One: DIY Unicorn Bookmark
Print and cut out the patterns from the template. Trace and cut out the big square shape on the paper selected for the bookmark.

Place the square paper on a flat surface. Fold the paper into half diagonally.

Hold any one corners of the open ends and fold it downwards, matching the end of the corner with the border line of the straight side.
Notice that there are now 3 triangles along the bottom side of the folded paper.

Grab any one triangles from the side and fold it upwards, matching its open end corner with the corner on the top side (of the folded paper).
Step Five: Folding Triangles
Similarly fold the triangle on the other side.

Hold any one of the triangular parts and fold it into half. Tuck the open side of the half fold into the triangular pocket.
