Here is a video featuring two useful modifications of the lovely heart model created by Ildiko Vass. This origami heart was featured in an earlier post. It would make a great decoration for a Valentine’s or Mother’s day gift.
What I’ve done here is alter the central locking mechanism of the heart. Now any number of hearts can be securely chained together. Also, a single paper heart can be attached to the corner of a gift card. Another use for this origami heart is as a clip for holding together two pieces of paper at their corners.
If you are already familiar with the folding of this paper heart you can skip to minute 2:55 where this locking variation is demonstrated.

Recommended paper: Thin paper, such as Japanese origami “kami” paper, or any gift wrapping paper. It’s best to use duo color paper for a great color change effect.
Paper size used for the examples in the photograph: 2 x2 inches about 5×5 cm.
