How To: Make Origami Heart

I like origami very much.

Very much indeed.

There’s just something very satisfying about folding sharp creases and making cool shapes out of paper.

Without any further ado, here’s how to make an origami heart!

Steps

1. Get an origami paper and lay it front side down.

2. Fold the paper so it becomes a rectangle. From that, fold it till it becomes a square. As you can tell, I ran out of pink so I’m using some random coral colour.

3. Open it up and you will be left with creases like this.

4. Fold the bottom half to meet the centre crease. Do the same for the top as well.

5. Then, turn it over.

6. Then fold the right side up towards the centre, but leaving the ‘flap’ unfolded.

7. Do the same for the left side till you end up with this.

8. Flip it over.

9. Fold the top part in half like in the picture below. There will be these.. flaps which needs to be folded into a squash fold.

11. Then, fold the sides of the ‘wings’ inwards. Ahh.. okay this is difficult to explain, just fold according to the picture. Heh.

12. Turn it over.. and TADAH! You got a winged heart!

So, girls, go make them for your boys or your friends. You can glue them on cards of make them stand as decoration.

Boys, make them for your girls and watch them swoon.

Meanwhile, I’m almost out of origami paper. =( And I’m totally and completely out of pink and red. I guess no more hearts for me then. At the moment, I have.. three pieces of green origami paper left.

Aiyoyohh.
