origami heart bookmark

Something to put a smile on your face when reading.



Use pretty paper, and make sure the paper you use doesn't split when folded (you often get that with scrap booking paper that is double sided. And make a test run on a piece of scrap paper before you start folding your pretty paper :-)

What you need:
A piece of paper 20cm x 10cm

To start off you must first fold a few guide lines



The first one fold the the paper in half, lengthwise, then open.


Then fold each half, in half lengthwise and open.


Last guideline, fold the top right corner in to the first line, and open.

No the folding starts...



Fold the top strip back on the line where the corner guideline ends.


Then fold the corners in, with the mid lines touch each other on the mid-line.


Fold the top corner backwards.


Now open the bottom square on the mid-line and fold the outside 1/4 in to the middle and flatten, repeat on the other side.


Fold the top four corners in.


Turn around and you have your origami heart bookmark!

:-) Enjoy reading!
