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??
