So it’s a little thing called Valentine’s Day tomorrow and in true Wedding Spark fashion, we thought we’d show you how to add a little craftiness to your day with these cute origami hearts.
So grab your origami paper and let’s get folding!
STEPS 1 & 2
Take your origami paper, white side facing up, and fold horizontally and vertically
Now, still with white side facing up, take the bottom and fold up to the half way mark
Now turn the paper over so the pink side is facing up. Take the right corner and fold into the middle vertical crease
Do the same on the left hand side. You should now have something that looks like the above pic
Flip the paper back over so the mainly white side is facing up. Now take the top right corner and fold it down into the middle vertical crease
Do the same again on the left hand side. Your paper should now look like the picture above
Now this is the tricky bit. You now need to fold the top point down to the very bottom point.
BUT you need to fold it so the white triangles on each side are not folded.
This may take a few tries, but be patient and careful and you will manage it
STEPS 9 & 10
These steps are optional.
For a more clean heart you can take the fold you did in step 8 and actually fold it into the bottom flap.
Next fold the white triangle on the right inwards.
Repeat on the left hand side
STEP 13 & 14
Now to make the tops of the heart
Fold each side to make a pointy shaped heart, like above
STEP 15 & 16
To finish the heart off fold the very top of each point to square off slightly
Turn it over and there you have it, your very own origami heart….
Cute aren’t they?!
And how about using them in your wedding day? We loved using them to add a pop of colour to a recent nordic styled shoot we styled.
Have a fabulously romantic weekend guys
Big crafty love
