While folding paper we focus on the positive, dwell in the moment, and become present to the grace and boundless possibilities that exist both in our interior and exterior life.
Making origami means creating moments of joy for ourselves and for those with whom we can share it
Once you get the hang of it, you can make this origami fortune heart (designed by Leyla Torres) in three minutes. From this origami heart, you can add a couple of folds and make an origami fortune cookie (coming soon). Fortune cookies and fortune hearts. Don’t these go well together!
You can fold this origami heart from the following video tutorial.
Tips and suggestions for making the origami heart
- In the video, the heart is demonstrated using computer paper
- 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 figure.
- Use a (solid-color) 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 will be visible in the finished figure.
After you make this heart, you are two steps away from making a fortune cookie, and what better cookies that these –no gluten, no sugar, no carbs, no calories! (The fortune cookie coming soon, promise.)
