so, I don't know about you, but since I tuaght myself origami, most of the patterns are really difficult. That's why I decided to show you how to make a paper heart so easy it would blow your mind.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Will Need
- a peice of paper. (preferably cardstock since that's what i used and it turned out awesome.)
- scissors. (only if paper isn't square.)
- a pencil.
Step 2: Make Sure the Paper Is Square
It would be easier to have just simply gotten square paper, but just in case you didn't...
first you have to fold the paper so the top left corner lines up with the bottom edge of the paper. DO NOT ACTUALLY FOLD. SIMPLY HOLD THE PAPER WHERE IT IS AND DRAW A LINE ALONG THE SHADOW WITH A PENCIL. once you've drawn that line you can simply cut along the pencil line. I'd suggest using a ruler just to make sure the line is perfect.
Step 3: Folding the Paper.
The first fold is really easy. you simply have to take a bottom corner, and fold it so that it goes in-between the 2 top corners.
Step 4: Second Fold.
now fold it so that the bottom left corner lines up with the top left corner.
Step 5: Last Fold
now it should look like a heart. but if you did this instuctable correctly, the top edges should be pointed. simply fold that back. now it should look like a heart.
Step 6: Why You Needed That Pencil.
you needed a pencil because obviously you're gonna write something. if not, skip this step.
so first, write like a name or something on the front.
then, unfold it and write a message inside.
lastly, refold it and give it to whoever.
or don't. this last step is 100% optional.
Step 7: This Is What It Should Look Like.
