We have found the craft that anybody would love. Huge thanks to Maggy from Red Ted Art for came up with so many amazing ideas, Please make sure to check out their website and Youtube channel, As you know, we do rather love our corner bookmark designs and have literally over a 100 for you to choose from.. but one glaringly obvious missing design was this darling little Mermaid Bookmark Corner.
These mermaid bookmark corners were first published in April 2018
We have Unicorn Corner Bookmarks.. and Mermaid Hug Book Bookmarks (I love these by the way, you simply have to take a look) and finally.. I managed to figure out what a Mermaid Corner Bookmark should look like. We have a whole collection of magical Mermaid Craft Ideas too!
Mermaid Corner Bookmark – Materials
- A square white piece of paper (can be skin tone too), we used one 15 x 15cm
- Coloured paper for hair and fins
- Pens & pencils (for facial details)
- Sequence or glitter glue for decorating (optional)
- Scissors & glue

Next trim your top on and sides of the corner bookmark.
The Mermaid’s Hair
Trace an outline of your mermaids head onto the coloured paper designed for the mermaid bookmark’s hair.
Shape to suit a face.
The Mermaid’s Fin
Trace the bottom half of the bookmark in the coloure paper chosen for the mermaids tail. Cut out a triangle.
Then cut out two fins.
