Easy Origami Valentine Heart Card Tutorial

My daughter needs to prepare 18 Valentine’s day cards for all her classmates until Monday. We decided to take handmade cards to school, and we made these adorable Origami Hearts yesterday. They are really easy to make. So I think I should share the how-to with someone who needs to make the last minutes Valentine gifts.

I am going to show only pictures of process. So if you have any questions, feel free to ask in your comment or send email to me at harujiondesign{at}gmail{dot}com. I used a 15x15cm (6×6 inches) Origami paper. If you don’t have Origami papers, don’t worry. Cut papers whichever you have in your house in square. I like to use recycling papers like pages from old magazines. OK, let’s start now.

Turn it 180° around.

Turn it over.

Turn it over.


I added a little more detail to my heart. I cut out another paper in a key shape and glue it in the center of the heart.

When you open the door of my heart, you will see the massage from me! It says “Be mine”. How sweet is that?

We are going to print out pictures of Nina’s smiley face, and put them in those colorful hearts with messages.

Happy Valentine’s day!




These are so cute! Thanks so much for the tutorial. Think the kiddos would love this project!
