Origami Heart Supplies
For each origami heart, you need:
- 1 triangle cut from a 7 inch square of scrapbooking paper or use a piece of origami paper. (origami paper is thinner) For this project the scrapbooking paper works great.
- a sticker
- a flat sucker
How to make an origami heart
Let’s get started making our paper heart. Start with a square by cutting a 7 inch square from scrapbooking paper. Cut the square in half to make two triangles. One triangle makes one sucker cover.
With the wrong side of the paper facing up, fold top corner of the triangle to bottom edge. Write a little note inside (the white side) if you like, and you wont need any valentine day cards!
Fold up the right edge of the triangle to center.
Repeat, folding the left edge of the triangle to center.
Flip paper over. Fold top points down.
Flip paper back over and slightly open to insert sucker.
Fold back up and place a sticker where the two sides meet.
Flip over and fold down the top and side edges on both sides.
Now you know how to make a heart out of paper and it is a sweet treat for someone special. These origami heart sucker covers are a great easy origami project for kids to make for their friends.
They are the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Lisa, I used the 8 1/2 X 11 sheets of scrapbooking paper so there is less waste. The 12 inch squares are too big, unless you have a way to use the scraps.
