Folding a Paper Heart

Introduction: Folding a Paper Heart

A fun and easy way to make Valentines for your friends!

Supplies:

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!
