Just in time to impress their teachers, friends or grandparents for Valentine’s Day we have an easy origami heart tutorial for you today!
There are several different ways to make an origami heart but I’ve found this the easiest to show kids and the easiest for them to replicate without instruction.
Start with a square sheet of paper or origami paper cut in half diagonally. We’ll be working with 1 triangle for each heart.
Fold the triangle in half and then open back up.
Fold the top down a little more than 1/2 way so about 2/3 of the way down.
Take one of the bottom points and pull it up towards the top.
Do the same to the other side.
Turn the whole thing over
Take one of the top points and fold it down and out
Do the same to the other side
Now fold the top points down halfway
Do the same to the side points
Turn over and you have a perfect little heart. You could even slide a note in the little pocket
