You’ve made paper snowflakes, but have you
ever made a snowflake heart? Check out this adorable craft that turns into a beautiful
Valentine. For this project, you’ll need colored card stock, colored origami paper, scissors,
double- stick tape, a pencil and the templates printed from parents. com / heart. To make
the back of the card, fold the piece of card stock in half. Take the large heart from the
template and place a straight edge on the fold like this. Cut it out just inside the
pencil line. Now, we’re gonna make the snowflake heart. Fold a piece of origami paper in half
and trace the half heart template onto the paper, placing the straight edge on the fold.
Cut it out but don’t unfold it. Now, we’re gonna fold the paper like we would to make
a snowflake. Fold the bottom part of the heart up to the center divot at the top. Turn it
over and fold the bottom edge up so it lines up with the original center fold. Use your
scissors to cut shapes along the 2 folded edges like you would for a paper snowflake.
Unfold it to reveal your beautiful pattern. Use double- stick tape to attach your lovely
snowflake heart to the card. Just like snowflakes, no 2 hearts will look alike.
