Origami Hearts

The other day I stumbled upon yet another Valentine craft I wanted to try… Origami Hearts!  The blog, Oh My! Handmade Goodness, had tutorial on how to make adorable origami heart garland.

I already had the supplies.. origami paper in every color of the rainbow, left over from the origami fortune cookies I made Ryan last year…

And the great thing about Origami is all you need is the paper!  No glue or scissors, of course.  You did need a few extra supplies if you wanted to make the garland though.. (like string & glue)

I used this great tutorial on how to make origami hearts that Handmade Goodness also used

… and made over 20 hearts!

The hearts are simple, I promise.  I am by no means an origami expert.

Watch my square piece of paper turn into a sweet little heart…

Then I glued the hearts to a string to make the garland… and had to tie beads on them because they were top heavy. (Good thing my cousin thought of that because I was sad about my upside hearts that wouldn’t hang right!)

My Mom said it reminds her of a heart shaped kites!  I can see that.

What else could you do with origami hearts??
