Origami Pocket Hearts


Keeping in the spirit of Valentine’s Day (I will literally use any excuse to make heart crafts), these little guys are perfect for making in bulk and distributing to your friends or roommates. The whole idea is very circa-elementary school, but it’s still cute. Friends need love too!

To make these hearts, it’s best to use paper lighter than cardstock. Wrapping paper or other decorative paper is idea, but if neither of these are available, you can easily make your own with printer paper and a few coloring utensils:

For folding, I used this tutorial but made some modifications because I found it a bit unclear. So, I made my own set of step-by-step instructions, which you can find here.

After your hearts are folded, write a message on a small strip of paper, fold it in half, and tuck it into the pocket on the front side of the origami heart. Then grab some tape and attach the hearts to your friends’ doors/walls/etc. Remember, it’s the little things that count!
