Let's make some origami hearts!  These cute paper hearts take only a minute or so to make and are a fun Valentine craft!  Add a message inside to make it extra special too!

Follow along to the full video tutorial too:

Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 sheet of construction paper (any color you like)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Here's how to make it!
  • Begin with a square piece of paper (trim if needed to get this shape).
  • Fold in half one way.
  •  Fold in half the other way.
  • You'll now have an "X" 
  • Turn so your square is a diamond shape.
  • Bring one point to the center and crease.
  • Bring the opposite point to the flat edge directly across and crease.
  • Fold one side up so that the bottom edge lines up with the center crease.
  • Repeat for the other side.
  • Flip the heart over and fold down the two top points so that the point meets the horizontal fold.
  • Done!  Add a message to the inside or string them up to be a garland!
