Valentines Day Special
How to –
ORIGAMI HEART CARD

IMG_2501

First you will want to fold your piece of paper(11″ X 4″) in half as a guide and create fold 3/4″ along the long edges and 1 3/4″ along the short edges. ( If using coloured paper make sure the design is face down during this)

Fold up the bottom corners and keep them along the 1 3/4″ line.

Fold in the 1 3/4″ sides along the already made crease.

Turn paper over and fold your top crease towards you.

Fold along this crease bring the now heart shape from the back with it.

Repeat on the other side.

Turn paper back over. Fold down the very top of your hearts.
Now fold up the bottom a little higher then your crease.

Flatten out corners, this fold may take a few tries to get right because you want those bottom pieces to be triangles, no overhanging edges.

Fold heart edges towards you again.

Your folding is done.
When you pull out the edges of the heart there is space to write a lovely message.

If you have done it with a blank piece of paper like I have you can colour it in or decorate it however you like.

I also make a small version and tied them together with a pretty ribbon.

I hope you guys have enjoyed my Valentines Day special and may recreate this card for you loved one.
It is nice and easy, home made and full of love.

Lots of Love Shorty
