Valentine's Origami Hearts

What better way to show someone you care than with a hand-folded paper heart?

Learn how to make a super easy origami heart for Valentine's Day.

Things you will need:

  • A piece of square paper - any paper will work.
  • A tiny bit of patience
  • A few clever folds

That's it - nothing complicated at all.

Here's what you have to do:

A point to note before you start - if you are using a two-sided sheet of paper then make sure you start with the wrong side facing up.

Step One

Start with a square piece of paper.

Step Two

Fold the paper in half on the diagonal bringing the top corner to the bottom one. Unfold.

Step Three

Fold in half again, bringing the bottom left corner to the top right one. Unfold.

Step Four

Turn your paper so that it is like a diamond rather than a square.

Step Five

Fold the bottom corner to centre crease.

Step Six

Rotate the paper around and fold bottom corner to top edge.

Step Seven

Fold the right hand side up diagonally to meet with centre fold.

Step Eight

Repeat the same step on the other side.

Step Nine

Flip over the folded paper.

Step Ten

Fold both of the top points down to the fold line.

Step Eleven

Now fold both of the side points in slightly.

Step Twelve

Flip the folded heart over and ta-da, there you have your finished origami heart.

If you are giving as a token on Valentine's Day, you can insert a slip of paper with a message into the centre pocket.

We've made Valentine's Cards to give to family and some rainbow bunting decorations.
