Corner Bookmark Toot (Tutorial)

Hey, HOT Mamas! Hope you all are having a MAGICAL MONDAY!
Did you all miss my FIRST Guest post and tutorial? Here it is! I hope you enjoy!
I LOVE craft projects that are easy enough to finish while watching How to Train Your Dragon (which I watch daily btw) and that I can have my kids be involved. I had planned a really cool tutorial for you all but it was a total craft FAIL in my book so I must try it again and see what went wrong. So, I decided to show you all a SUPER EASY, super CUTE craft that you can make in literally a minute.
Supplies needed:
Square Envelopes (mine are 4 ¾ x 4 ¾ )
Stickers or Embellishments of your choice
A paper cutter or scissors
A Pencil
Seriously that is all you need!
Here are your supplies
Measure, using your book of choice, 
where you would like your book mark to fit 
over the corner of your page.   
See my mark on the right.
Line up your mark with your paper cutter or scissors
and CUT. 
If you would like a more precise corner measure
both side equally, I measured 10" on one side and ten
on the other.

Line up both marks and CUT. 
OR if you cannot find a pencil or pen or you
just don't want to, line up the envelope like a diamond
and cut from one corner to the other.
See how easy that is!!! And think about how you
can recycle or up-cycle all that junk mail you get!!
Okay, now here come the hard part!
Add your sticker and embellishment where you would
like and voila...
Aren't these little Robot Dudes soooo
I added a leftover flower to one as well!
A little to big for this book.
Fits just right! Now how stinking easy was that??
Check out these that my 6-year-old daughter made...

She used her favorite craft book:
water colors, some of her stickers, and a pen to make hers.
HAHA She made a frog! LOVE it! 
Her Stickers. She said she added the red ribbon
because she is a real princess. TOO CUTE! 
And a mermaid and her father with a fish.
Aren't they cute!!
Thanks for having me over to play, I hope all you loverly readers enjoyed my tiny little tutorial!
