I created this origami bookmark design in 1999 during a wave of creativity that came over me one day, just so I could put my drawings on it. I’ve only folded origami items a few times, so I just got lucky when I decided to make a bookmark and it worked.
After I made the bookmark, I was never sure what to do with it. I had it on the front page for a while, then I kind of buried in the site, and finally I deleted it, but people had linked to it by then. I’ve been getting requests for it ever since.
So, instead of hiding it, I’ve decided to resurrect Toad Hollow Studio’s Original Origami Bookmark! I’ve even added new artwork choices for you to print out, fold, and love.
Here they are. These are two page pdf downloads, with the bookmark on one page and the folding instructions on the other.
