DIY Origami Hearts

Valentines Day may be over,
but there’s always a reason to create your own paper heart bouquet.
I put together step by step instructions – in super fun GIF form! – to design a bunch for yourself.
And the great news? It cost just a few dollars for materials, and lasts longer than any real bouquet ever would.

I have to give full credit to Azumarek, for the instructions on how to fold the hearts.
The entire project took me 45 minutes to complete. Bam!

STEP ONE
[1] Cut one square piece of paper in half, horizontally
(I used a 10cm x 10cm sticky-note pad, which makes two hearts each sheet)

STEP TWO
[2]Β (With one of the halves) fold down the centre to crease, and open back up
[3] fold the bottom upwards as shown
[4] Fold the right and left side inwards to the centre crease
[5] flip over

STEP THREE
[6] Fold the right and left sides inwards
[7] fold the right/left top of each side of the heart, leaving you with two small triangles
[8] fold down the top of each triangle
[9] flip over to see your heart!

STEP FOUR
[10] Flip over again and skewer the back of the paper

And now you’re done!
