Following on from this morning’s mini inspiration shoot, i have a little tutorial on how to craft the super cute heart origamis. It’s oh so simple once you know how.
WHAT YOU NEED:
A Square piece of paper
1: Fold the piece of paper corner to corner.
3: Fold in the opposite direction.
4: You will be left with two lines going from corner to corner, this will help you to line up your folds.
5: Fold the top corner to the middle of the paper.
6: Fold the bottom corner to the top of the piece of paper.
7: Take the entire side of the paper and fold it upwards against the middle line.
8: Repeat for the other side.
9: You now have the basic heart shape.
10: Flip the heart over, and fold the side corner inwards.
11. Repeat on the other side.
12. Fold the top corner down.
13: Repeat on the opposite side.
14: Flip the heart over, and it is complete.
You may want to secure with a little glue/selllotape… place in a book to flatten. The piece of paper you use will make a difference. I used tissue paper which is prone to creasing and very delicate, a thicker type of paper may be more suited to your project.
Once you memorise the process you will be able to make a whole heap of gorgeous hearts, and it’s really fun :-)
For ideas on how to use the hearts in your wedding décor see this inspiration shoot.
Happy Crafting xoxo Lou
