Open it back up and you will see a vertical line in the middle.

Now, take the right corner of the triangle and bring down to the bottom corner, lining up the edge along the crease.

Move the bottom corner of the triangle up and crease. Make sure to only take the top piece of the corner.

The folded part will be the bottom of the heart that slides over the corner of the page. Draw the curves of the heart shape on the side opposite of the folds. Then cut along the lines to finish making your heart bookmark.
