Follow the instructions below to make this Origami Heart Card
It’s the little things we do that can bring a smile to someone we love, and writing a simple note on an origami heart card that you made will do the trick. Tape it on the mirror, place it on the car’s dashboard, or wherever they’re sure to see your message, and their day will start out sunny.
This origami heart card is very easy to fold. The detailed step by step pictures and instructions will make sure you’re able to fold one in little time. Making this with plain paper is fine, but origami paper with different colors on each side is recommended to make your card extra sweet.
Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper. If you only have regular 8.5×11 paper, follow these instructions to make it into a square sheet.
Step 2: Fold the paper in half, then unfold.
Step 3: Cut the paper in half. We just need one half.
Step 4: With one half, fold that in half vetically and unfold.
Step 5: Now fold in half left to right, then unfold.
Step 6: With the top half, fold 1/3rd of it down, then unfold.
Step 7: With that one third, fold in half.
Step 8: Turn the paper over.
Step 9: Fold the top corners to the center crease.
Step 10: Fold the triangle in half (from the tip to triangle base), then unfold and fold it backwards.
Step 11: Here’s the hardest part, which is still easy. Open the left flap and squash as shown.
Step 12: Squash the right flap also.
Step 13: Fold in the top two flaps diagonally as shown.
Step 14: Fold the bottom corners as shown.
Step 15: Fold the bottom up to the top and tuck it in the “pocket”.
Step 16: Turn the figure over, write a note, and place it somewhere 🙂
