This is an easy paperfolding craft to make with your kids before visiting a grandparent or loved-one who would surely love this *heartfelt* keepsake. It’s also easy to include in a card or letter, since it’s flat. One of the best parts about origami and paper folding projects is that all you need for this crafts project is paper and tape.  Not only will this be a fun arts and crafts activity, but it can also be given to someone that you love as a gift (such as Mom on Mother’s Day or Dad on Father’s Day).

Easy Origami Heart Paper Folding Origami Craft for Kids

Crafts Materials That You Will Need:

A regular piece of rectangular paper, like construction paper
Tape, if desired


origami-heart-step-one


1. Create creases by folding your paper in half one way, and then the other, and unfolding again. (There is a lot of folding and unfolding in origami. The crease is the thing, so make sure yours are sharp.)

2. Holding your paper horizontally, fold in the upper left and upper right corners so that the point meets the vertical middle crease. The points will extend just past the horizontal middle crease.

3. Now fold the bottom left and bottom right corners up so that the point meets the verticle middle crease. This should form your paper into a square shape with points facing north, south, east and west.

4. Turn your paper over, and fold the top point down to meet the bottom point. This should leave about a 1″ unfolded section at the top. You should be left with a diamond-like shape as seen above.

5. Fold in the outer left and outer right points so that they appear as small, folded-in triangles, as seen above.


origami-heart-step-six


6. Fold in the two top, center points to form a shape as seen above.

7. Tape down folds, if desired, and turn over – you have a lovely paper heart!

    Sorry that it seemed hard to you, Sweetie. 🙁 Here are some more Origami hearts to try – they might be easier for you – http://www.artistshelpingchildren.org/origamihearts-howtomakeorigamiheartsinstructions.html – Ask your parents first before you go on any of these tutorial though (they are links to outside sites) if they only gave you permission to be on ArtistsHelpingChildren.org. Ok? Good Luck.

    I am having a difficult time understanding step 6. i love the finished product so i am hoping you can clarify how to do step 6-7. in the instructions you say fold point B to point A, but that is just folding the paper in half.
    can you please help me with step 6? Thank you so much.

    Hi there. I’m sorry to say that the person who created this tutorial isn’t here anymore…but I will try to help even though I never did this craft. It looks like you need to fold the 2 corners in the center of the shape (where the 2 piece of paper meet at the top) in to be triangles .. and then tape them down. I will try to put up another origami heart tutorial tonight just in case you aren’t able to understand this one. Thanks.
