USE THESE FOR ANYTHING, PUT THEM IN JAR TO SHOW YOUR LOVE, OR EVEN USE THEM AS A WISH/FORTUNE BY WRITING ON THE PAPER BEFORE YOU FOLD THEM
Step 1: Paper
i'm using paper out of my exercise book (which is white). i'm cutting my paper out of one sheet. You have the option to used colour paper and/or magazine paper to make your hearts
Step 2: Cutting It Out
i'm using a strip, around 1cm by 20cm.
i cut it out of my paper and am just about ready to fold! :D
Step 3: Folding Process :)
make a triangle with your paper so that the edge lines up with the bottom of the piece. so it makes a triangle. fold it so it repeats this step until you only have a little bit left.
Step 4: The Tuck
use your scissors to cut the little flap left a bit smaller so that it will fit in the slit created by the previous fold.
Step 5: Forming the Heart
press with your finger nail into the longest edge of the triangle, so you are pushing towards the corner directly below.
this makes a shape that somewhat resembles a heart.
Step 6: The Squeeze.
grab the two ends that stick up and and push them in the middle of your forefingers and thumbs so the bottom of the heart puffs out :p
Step 7: Seeing the Heart Come to Life
use your scissors to cut a semi circle above the puffed out area, repeat either side.
Step 8: Ta Da! :D
