Making a Seminole Patchwork Bookmark

Here are the steps for making a bookmark:

Line up three strips of paper and tape them together on the back.
Step 1
Measure sections that are the same width as the original strips, so that you form squares.
Cut the tricolor band.
Step 2
Rotate the sections 45 degrees and secure with tape on the back.
Step 3
Add a band to the top and bottom of the diagonal sections matching edge of the band to the corners of the squares and tape on the back to secure.
Step 4
Trim the excess from the ends.
Step 5
Read a book long enough that you need to use your bookmark!
