The origami heart envelope is very easy to make, and also pretty and useful at the same time. This is the perfect envelope to hold your note in to give to your sweetheart, and also makes a great replacement for valentine cards.
If you have experience folding origami, some of the early steps will be extremely easy. However, even if this is your first time, the steps are still very easy as long as you follow the step by step instructions. Pictures are included to guide you along the way. You’ll be able to fold an origami heart envelope in just a few minutes.
Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper. If you only have regular 8.5×11 paper, follow these instructions to make a square sheet.
Step 2: Fold the paper in half by folding the top corner to the bottom corner.
Step 3: Fold the left corner to the right corner.
Step 4: Fold the top layer in half by folding the right corner to the bottom corner.
Step 5: Unfold the top layer. We only want the crease.
Step 6: Squash fold the top layer. To squash fold, open the top layer at the creases you just made and flatten down.
Step 7: Turn over.
Step 8: Fold the left corner to the bottom corner.
Step 9: Unfold. We only want the crease.
Step 10: Unfold the top layer. We only want the crease.
Step 11: Turn the figure upside down.
Step 12: Fold the top layer down as shown, not all the way down. Almost done!
Step 13: Turn over to the other side.
Step 14: Fold the top layer down like you did on the other side.
Step 15: Fold the top flaps down to the side as shown. (Don’t worry about the crease in the middle, I messed up.)
Step 16: Now fold a small portion of the top corner of both sides down as shown.
Step 17: Fold in the left and right corners as shown.
Step 18: Just turn the figure around and you’ll have a working origami heart envelope.
