Folding paper is always fun, and folded paper is always a welcome gift. As a last-minute Valentine’s Day flourish, why not show you cared enough to go to all the effort of learning a few new tricks with your hands?
This clever origami heart with a bonus coin at its centre is the Kathleen Weller design called “Change in Heart,” folded by Michele Rousseau and discovered for us by the ever-loving (but now vanished) Idea Girl blog. I have, however, tracked down a nice little tutorial for folding the Change in Heart design for you, thanks to Clara at Bloomize, along with other sweet heart origami designs.
You can adapt to bill folding for a creative presentation of a gift of money… or just make up your shapes in pretty paper, for fun and decoration, perhaps to use in place of table confetti at a wedding reception or anniversary dinner?
Just see where your imagination will take you, once you get into the habit of folding hearts!
