A square of orange paper – 15 x 15cm is good dimensions
Paper in contrasting colours and extra orange – we used white and cream, but browns and greys can work too
Begin by making your basic origami book mark using the orange paper by following the steps below.
1. Cut a square from your paper and fold it in half to make a triangle.
2. Fold the bottom corners up so they meet in the middle. Then fold the front down to make a triangle shape.
3. Now fold both of the bottom corners up and tuck them in to the little pocket.
Your bookmark works by sliding the pocket over the corner of the page you are reading.
Once you have made your basic origami bookmark in orange paper, you can decorate it it.
You will need to make some orangutan pieces.
Add your orangutan's face in black pen.
Glue the face onto your bookmark.
If you enjoyed making this bookmark, you could make one in the shape of one of the other creatues we have been learning about.
