How to Make a Cat Bookmark:

Let’s start with the cat first. Meowww!!

Step 1

First of all, fold the square paper diagonally. Then, fold it in half, but make sure you crease it only at the top this time. Unfold it once and you are left with a triangle with a little crease at the top as shown below.

Step 2

Now, fold both the ends of the triangle towards this crease. You will get two smaller triangles on both the sides. Fold them again backwards and make them even smaller. You have made the kitty’s little ears!
