How to Make a Puffy Origami Heart Garland


This is probably going to be heart week. With Valentine's Day coming up I have so many heart tutorials I want to share. My camera is full of heart crafts! Here is a simple one and one of my favorites. It just requires some paper and yarn. Please view the video tutorial for the full instructions. I used wrapping paper to make these hearts. If your paper is thin then you want to use longer sheets of paper, or it will be difficult for you to "puff" the hearts. The proportions I uses are 1x5 (ie for 1inches by 5 inches, 1 cm by 5 cm, 2 cm by 10 cm etc). If you use thicker paper you can get away with 1x4 or maybe less.
String hearts together with yarn or bakers twine.

The basic step is to fold a triangle from a strip of 2inch x10inch paper.  See video tutorial for full steps.
