Introduction: Folding a Paper Heart
A fun and easy way to make Valentines for your friends!
1 square piece of paper
(in this example, we will be using a sticky note)
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Begin by acquiring a piece of square paper. For this example, we will be using a sticky note.
Step 2: Rotate Paper
Place the paper flat on the desk, in position so that it makes a diamond shape with the corners facing up and down.
Step 3: Fold Paper
Fold the paper in half by bringing together the top and bottom corners.
Step 4: Reopen Paper
Unfold the paper so it that it once again lays flat.
Step 5: Fold Paper the Oposite Way
Bring the right corner to the left and crease, so that both creases intersect at the middle of the paper.
Step 6: Reopen Paper
Unfold the paper so that it once again lays flat.
Step 7: Create the Top Fold
Fold the top corner to the center of the paper and crease.
Step 8: Create a Bottom Fold
Bring the bottom corner all the way to the top crease, so that the bottom is now overlapping the top, and fold.
Step 9: Bring Edges Toward Center
Fold bottom left and right edges inwards until they meet in the center.
Step 10: Make the Curves
Fold the top and side corners backwards to create more of a curved shape. Make sure to fold each side equally in order to make them symmetrical.
Step 11: Decorate
Decorate (optional) and Enjoy!
