Using the origami technique, you can create a wide variety of figurines and souvenirs, including a heart, which can be presented as a Valentine's Day card or decorated with gift wrapping.
Volumetric paper heart: option 1
- colored paper;
Cut a rectangle out of colored paper so that its length is exactly twice the width, and then bend it diagonally four times.
We fold one side of the rectangle towards the center with the letter X exactly along the folds. We do the same on the other side of the sheet. As a result, you should get two large triangles.
Having determined the center of the triangle, we roll each part to the top. We open each valve as shown in the photo, then bend one side of the resulting figure.
We turn the future heart over and bend the corners, after which we bend all the resulting valves on the front of the figure.
A voluminous heart made using the origami technique can be presented as a souvenir to your loved one for Valentine's Day, decorated with gift wrapping or used as an element of decor.
Volumetric paper heart: option 2
- colored double-sided paper;
We take a sheet of colored paper and cut out a square from it, and then fold it twice to outline the middle lines. We bend the sides of the square to the center: the right side - back, and the left - forward.
Bend the square to the center (as shown in the photo) and unbend it. In this case, the fold line is not needed, it is important to fix the lateral points, therefore, when bending, the workpiece does not need to be straightened, holding only the folds along the edges with your fingers.
Bend and unbend the workpiece again as shown in the photo.
Next, we make an incision to the line marked in the photo, and then bend the corners.
Fold the resulting figure in half and bend the corners to the middle.
The voluminous paper heart is ready, it remains only to find a suitable romantic use for it.
