Make some easy origami woven paper hearts. These cute origami hearts are easy to make with strips of paper. No glue required. Perfect little gift for Valentine’s Day or any time of year. I really like these little woven paper hearts, they are addicting to make. Hope you enjoy the tutorial, let me know if you make any.
You can use just one colour, I used two to make it easier to see what’s happening. I can imagine these as earrings or a pendant, especially if you make them with plastic ribbon or maybe varnish them.
This is a traditional method of weaving. I’m not really sure this is actually classed as origami, but it could easily be. I have seen them made with plastic straws, but I don’t use them. You could make them with anything really. Ribbon, plastic, fabric or paper.
This model is featured in my origami book:

Hi, don’t get me wrong, I love your videos, but it is impossible to watch them here. When we hit pause, it opens a huge menu with “more videos” in front of the image. Sometimes we need to pause in order to see how the origami is looking, but we can’t see anything with that big menu covering everything. It kinda makes pausing useless.
Thanks for letting me know about that, I have now removed the youtube pause pop up thing, I guess that’s a recent addition. 🙂
So there is actually an ‘X’ on the right top corner. I understand if you didn’t see it, I didn’t at first either, and it was very frustrating
Brilliant and inspirational
