Sticky-note Page Corner Bookmark Redux September 8, 2007

Back in December of last year I posted instructions to making a sticky-note page corner, but somebody who calls himself DyNama, King of Post-its commented today about the sticky part touching the pages of the book, which is not something that I would want to happen to anybody.  So, naturally, I had to check it out.  Unfortunately, my original instructions were a little hard to follow.  It took me a while to reproduce what I did in December.  So I’m going to try to clarify a little.  Just doing my bit for Royalty.

Take a square sticky-note and put it face down with the sticky part down and on the side farthest away from you like this:

Fold the side closest to you so that it meets the side farthest away from you and crease it like this:

Then unfold, so it looks like this:

 0908071439a.jpg

Then fold it in half left side to right, like this:

 0908071440.jpg

And unfold that, so it looks like this:

 0908071440a.jpg

Now flip it over so the sticky part now faces up, but it is still on the side away from you, like this:

 0908071441.jpg

Then fold the Bottom Right corner to the top left like this:

 0908071441a.jpg

And unfold that, so it looks like this:

0908071441b.jpg 

And fold the bottom left corner to the upper right corner like this:

 0908071441c.jpg

And unfold that. I have marked the folds that have sticky stuff on them with numbers 1-4, so that it looks like this:

 09080714431.jpg

If you fold corners one to corner two, and corner three to corner four, you will get a thing that looks like this:

 0908071444.jpg

Then you can fold the stuck together corners into an arrow-like thing like this:

 0908071444a.jpg

Then put it in a book like this:

0908071445.jpg

And there you go.  Is that any better, DyNama, King of Post-its?  Or is the sticky part still connecting with the book?  That didn’t happen when I tried this again, so I’m hoping that my instructions were so unclear the first time that they just misled you.  If so, I’m terribly sorry.

yep that clears it right up. i couldn’t tell that the little arrow was 2 pieces. i was opening and flattening one of the bookmark corners making 2 new creases simultaneously and ending up with the little arrow being 1 piece, in fact it is 1 of the whole corners of the original post-it. i included my “title” cuz i enthusiastically (even fanatically) _buy_ post-its, i have thousands, so i can even color-code these bookmarks. anyway, thanx for the add’l explanation…and the clever idea.

this sentence however has no less than fifty six letters.

DyNama, glad things worked out. I am happy to help.

I have lots of different sticky-notes too, although not as many as you, I should think. Is that thousands of different kinds? I am thinking of doing a post on post-it’s new 3×5 lined index cards that have reusable sticky stuff on them. I use these things quite a bit, now, even though they are quite a bit more expensive than either index cards or sticky notes.
