They're cute! I bet I know a little almost-6-yr-old who could have fun making these. ;)Mum
Thanks for the idea, they are beautiful, I've done my tiny heart: http://fortedoce.blogspot.com.br/2013/01/marcador-de-pagina-de-coracao-em-origami.html
Wow, so speedy! Looks great!
Perfect valentine gift for gifting book club buddies!
:) thanks, my children will be happy
Genius!! I'm going to include this in a home decor/usefulness roundup I'm posting later tonight.
Looks great! Will try this haha thanks :P
Thanks for this tutorial and the Valentines idea. I've seen this before but never thought to use it as a bookmark so didn't think to make it. Would make a lovely token to give with a book gift too! I mean to write to people more this year, thirds would make a charming little gift to slip into a greetings card- thanks for the inspiration! :)
Thank-you for the tutorial!! After reading I ended up making 12 myself :)I made a blogpost on them if you'd like to see them http://theluckyflower.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/origami-hearts.html
Um, I am making these asap. I was just thinking today how much I need a new bookmark.
I used to make these when I was in grade school, but never thought of making half of one as a bookmark. Such a wonderful idea!
Good idea and lovely papers !
thats fantastic! I always use old bus tickets or paper stripes I just found next to me, but this is a great solution to pimp the book and for sure I will read much more the next time, so I can use this wonderful tiny hearts frequently!
These are adorable - can't wait to start making some!Jodie xx | Future Freaks Me
Is there a way to stiffen fabric to use it for this? Lovely idea!
So easy n beautiful! Thanks for sharing !
So cute! I usually lose my page markers, so this comes in handy! Thanks for sharing! :)
Lizabeth, here's how I've stiffened fabric in the past. That should work for this project. Press the folds flat with an iron.
could not stop creating them - now every book on my desk got its own tiny heart - thank you so much for sharing!my hearts @http://mintlametta.blogspot.de/2013/01/ein-herz-fur-bucher.html
What a fun idea! I think this will be our Valentine's Day craft with the boys. Thank you!
Great idea for valentines for kids classes. Fabulous!

I think I am going to make these for Valentine's Day, I think a lot of my friends and family would love these. Thanks for sharing.
They are awesome!A little hint: if they are a bit to thick just iron over and press them flat and they will be perfectly flat and fitting =)Hanna
Nice tip, Hanna!
Nice blog. I will keep visiting this website very often. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.My name is Thanh Le, i am the owner of blog Home Design Lover I'd be happy if you allow me to list your blog
thanks for share.
very beautiful origami papers you have
It is a amazing usage!I write a message to friends and families inside a heart<3
I'm feeling really dumb...I must be skipping a step? My hearts have a crease down the middle where they open up. Is that they way they are supposed to be?
Do you mean there are two flaps of paper that meet in the center on the front side? If so, that's right. If they're not laying flat, you can try Hanna's good suggestion of ironing the heart for a bit to make it flatter. Make sure you fold very precisely, which will help, too.If you're talking about a fold somewhere, I'm quite sure without seeing it.
Those hearts are so cute! Now I know how to use my leftover papers in my drawer. ;)Thanks to you, I've found a way to become more creative! I've been following your blog for quite some time, and suddenly, I completely became a regular reader of yours.Thank you again for sharing this wonderful idea! More power to you!
I think we'll make these today. In looking at yours again, I'm impressed with how your patterns came together on your pink and blue hearts! Cool!Mum
Total accident. And a tip: use thin paper; it works better. If you don't have origami paper, try wrapping paper.
Cute hearts, such a sweet idea. I think I'll give it a go tomorrow....
I needed a bookmark and found your blog, the tiny heart is so cute, since I'm an anime fan I glued a picture of my favorite character and it's perfect (for me), thanks a lot for the tutorial; and by the way, I love your blog.
So cute! Thanks for sharing :)
Your directions were so very clear and easy, and these little hearts make a great Valentine's project! I've linked to your tutorial in my blog at SympatheticThreads.com. Thanks!
I need your help. I love your pictures and very simple, clear directions and yet I'm still messing it up. My hearts are turning out with a long slit down the middle and nothing holding it together. I have no idea what step I've messed up or skipped but would love your insight!I'm medically homebound at the moment and would love to spend the day working on these!
hi,i pinned it on my pintrestand tried of course but the problem is that it doesn't stay on the paper :(
Hi!! I tried . . . it came out beautiful, but I must be doing something wrong since the final result is a heart with a slit in the middle . . . I'm thinking of gluing a little circle to join both flaps; if not, it does not remain on the page. Thanks for sharing.
I purchased 3 books for my twin granddaughters and one for their mom so that they can start a tradition of reading the same book and then together and talking about the book so I made these cute little heart bookmarks for them ,and printed a baby picture of them and glued it on the heart bookmarks and mod podged ....soso cute!
Thank you! I made it out of scratch paper that I had and covered in washi tape! v cute!
