Tips and suggestions for making the Petal Heart

  • Use Kami paper, onion-skin paper, or very thin paper that is soft and crisp such as washi, which is strong and feels soft like cloth. In the video, the heart is demonstrated using handmade paper by Michael LaFosse.
  • Use a piece of paper (solid color) that’s at least 8 x 8 inches (20 x 20 cm.) when you make this model for the first time.
  • The paper should be the same color on both sides.
