Bookmark Problem Solved!

So that, the other day I made a status in my Facebook, telling that I don't like the idea of using bookmark while reading (even though I lobe to make them and give them to friends) because;

1) I keep losing them, it keeps falling down from the pages.
2) I keep losing the page where I stop, and it is ineffective.

I received different opinions from my friends.

So, for years, I keep folding a crease on the page where I stopped reading (or where I fell asleep!). My books are always dogeared.

Dogeared Burgess' favourite book.

The Enemy in the Blanket (Direct translation of Musuh Dalam Selimut-The third  part of Malayan Trilogy)

Then, I found the idea of cutting the edge of an envelope so that I could tuck in the page where I stopped. I really hope that this bookmark would not fall down from the page. However, the cons of this bookmark is it is made from thin paper and I found that it is difficult to open the edge everytime I want to mark the last page where I stopped reading.

The edge of the envelope that I cut to be a bookmark.
Then, I had the idea of googling the origami bookmark. I found that it is easy, interesting and elegant and cost u not more than 5 cents (perhaps). I found several ideas and start to fold my own bookmarks. These bookmarks are awesome because;

1) It tucks easily into the page as it is made from normal paper, but folded several time into thick folds.
2) It is cheap, elegant, beautiful and simply, I love Japanese art.
3) I would not losing my bookmark easily.

These are several bookmarks that I folded myself and I include the link that provide you with videos and instructions.
