3D origami hearts


Yesterday's post got me in the mood for origami, so I tried out the instructions in Samuel Tsang's video on how to make 3D paper hearts. The lighting isn't great, but I figured out the steps, thanks to Samuel's pen. The folds aren't difficult; it's just hard to see them.


Each heart is folded from one square of paper. The openings in the sides make it easy to string them into a garland. Just think— by Valentine's Day, you could fold hundreds. Thousands. You could have a heart garland long enough to wrap around your house a few times.


If you need more Valentine ideas, try one of these other DIY projects.

Just to clarify, I myself do not have time to make thousands. Maybe you should. Ha.

Grandma G said...

You're saying I have nothing to do?!

Jessica Jones said...

Well, if you get tired of sewing, then. I can't wait to see what you're making, BTW!

Grandma G said...

I can't wait to show you! I think you'll like it! It's a good project to work on during our 'blizzard warning' for tomorrow (snow with winds 50-60 mph - yikes!). Provided the power stays on, that is. If it goes out, I may have to resort to folding hearts.

Always good to have a backup plan.

Grandma G said...

Even if I have no origami paper.

I'm going to set the boys on this task tomorrow. They're big into origami right now.

I really love reading the conversations between Grandma G and you, it's kinda like the bonus section of your blog :)

This has two things that I love, origami and hearts. So I am definitely giving this a try. Those origami look lovely.

Someone in our 1st Sunday group meeting taught this one last weekend.

I just finally folded one this morning, and love it!
