This is an easy fold and perfect for sending a love note to your Valentine!
What you need:
- a piece of origami paper--preferably red on one side, white on the other.
- glue or tape
What you do:
Start with the white side of your paper up. (Square base.)
Fold in half, top to bottom:
Unfold and repeat, folding left to right.
Unfold and turn paper over.
Fold in half, top to bottom.
Unfold and fold in half left to right.
Unfold. Your paper should collapse at its creases like this:
Tuck the sides in...
and flatten the top.
Fold the top layer down like so. When you're done, turn over and repeat on the other side. Both sides of your envelope will look the same at this point.
Fold the top corners toward the center.
Now fold the top points down, like this:
Fold both side points in.
Glue or tape down all four points. (Yeah, I know, tape and/or glue is a no-no in origami.)
Turn over and slip a love note, a piece of chocolate or even a diamond ring into your heart envelope.
