Folding Origami Paper Crafts : How to Fold a Piece of Paper Into a Heart


You want to make a heart out of paper? I’ll
show you how. My name is Robert Segundo, and today I’m going to teach you h ow to make
an Origami heart. If you look down here at the table, you can see I’ve got a square piece
of paper, and it’s already been pre-creased for me, so we can kind of get this going a
little bit quicker, here. So what you want to do is you’re just going to want to fold
it over in half, like so. Open it back up. Fold it over in half, again. And then open
it back up. Then what we’re going to do is we’re going to fold a quarter, so, going to
fold it like this, and like so. Then what we’re going to do is, we’re going to fold
it in half, down this way, and like this to form a triangle. Open it back up. Fold it
in half the opposite way as well. Open it back up, and this line that we have, or this
cross that we have created here, we’re going to take and we’re going to fold this edge
over to that line. So it crosses right on that cross. What we’re going to do is you
have these flaps here that are kind of created that were left over, creases. So what we’re
going to do is we’re just going to kind of take those and crease them on the inside,
like so. Just kind of a reverse fold thing. What we’re going to do is we’re going to repeat
that over here, and since this is already pre-creased, I can just basically fold it
over into that section. Now what you’re going to do is, you’re going to kind of place your
fingers in here, like so. You’re going to bring this together. And just kind of squish
it down, like that. And when you pick it up and fold it down, you can see you’ve already
got your heart shape. Already pre-made. And you can just kind of take and work your corners
down, like work the top down, and really kind of, you know, round it out. Make it look however
you want to. So, there it is. There’s your paper heart, play around with it, have fun
and enjoy.

  1. okay so the trick is to make sure its square not just a regular, rectangular piece of paper. i wasted binder paper trying it that way.
