Materials Needed

– paper
– scissors
– red paint marker
– pencil


Step 1

Make the paper square.



Step 2

Cut the paper in half.


Step 3

Fold in half, then unfold (because we need the crease).


Step 4

Fold every half in half again, like in the picture …

… and unfold.


Step 5

Fold the upper right corner until you reach the closest crease.



Step 6

Fold in the dotted line.


Step 7

Fold the right upper corner to meet the center crease.

Do the same with the left upper corner.


Step 8

Fold the new formed corner like in the picture (in half)

It will look like this.


Step 9

This could seem tricky but it is quite simple. Fold in the first crease on the right, lifting the corner and flattening it.

This will force another fold on the back.


Step 10

We are still working on the face. Do the same with the other side. It should look like this.


Step 11

Fold a little corner on all upper corners…

… like this.


Step 12

Turn over and… there is the heart!


Step 13

Use the paint marker to decorate it the way you like.

And, there you have it…. you just finished making your beautiful heart bookmark.  Didn’t it turn out just lovely?  Take a picture of your Heart Bookmark and post it in the comments below so I can see how awesome your bookmark turned out.
