How To Make An Origami Heart: Step-By-Step Instructions

1. Creating the Initial Creases on the Square Paper

Start with a square piece of paper and place it in front of you so that when you look down at it, it looks like a diamond. Now, fold the right corner to the left corner and then unfold. Then fold the top corner down to the bottom corner and then unfold. Use the above image as a reference.

2. Folding the Top Corner Downward

Once you have those creases made, you’ll take the top corner of the paper and fold it down to meet the center crease as the image above depicts.

3. Folding the Bottom Corner Upward

Now, you will take the bottom corner and fold it upwards to meet the top edge of the paper as the image shows.

4. Folding the Left and Right Bottom Edges Diagonally

Take the left and the right bottom edges and fold them diagonally up towards the center and line them up with each other as shown in the above picture.

5. Rounding the Heart’s Edges

As you can see, the heart shape is starting to form and you are nearly finished. Now we’ll be giving the heart a more rounded shape so that it’s not so pointy on all the edges. To do that you must fold back all the corner points except for the bottom-most point. It should be around half an inch that you are folding back. This will round out the edges of the heart. Use the image above as a good reference.
