How to Make

  1. Take a sheet of red paper and cut off the top section 3.5 inches down. So you have a piece of paper that is the width of the sheet and 3.5 inches tall.
  2. Fold the piece of paper in half lengthways so you now have a longer, thinner sheet of paper.
  3. Fold it in half widthways, crease down the fold line, then unfold. Use this centre fold line as a marker, and fold the two ends of the paper upwards to meet that line, creating two diagonal folds.
  4. Turn the paper over and fold down the top 2cm of the ends of the paper at the top. Then fold the corners down to create the heart shape.
  5. Turn the heart over again and stick two wiggle eyes to the front, and draw a smile underneath with a black pen.

Top Tip

If your origami heart isn't staying folded, add a small piece of tape to the back to hold the two ends of the paper together.
