Tips and suggestions for making the Puffy Hearts

  • Any thin and crisp paper is ideal to use for these hearts. Copy paper, kami, tant, gift wrapping papers can all be used for this model.
  • In the video, the different versions of these puffy hearts are demonstrated using thin kami paper. In the U.S. kami is known as “origami paper”.
  • Use a piece of paper that’s at least 6 x 6 inches (15 x 15 cm.) when you make this model for the first time.
  • Only one side of the paper shows when the piece is complete. It’s not necessary to have paper colored differently on each side.
