Happy February

This quick and easy project to celebrate the coming of Valentine’s Day was inspired by one of my pins on Pinterest. I initially tried it with standard 6-inch origami paper, and the hearts came out beautifully because the paper was colored foil, but they seemed huge, so I changed to solid colors of handpainted paper, ordered from this website, and cut them into 3×3 squares – this meant I could get four hearts out of each piece of paper! I followed the folding directions here and then used double-sided tape to hold the floral stems in the center of the hearts. I cut the stems in half so they wouldn’t seem so tall and ungainly, and kept folding until I had a vase full. Even my six-year-old was able to master heart-folding – a perfect project for homemade valentines for my girls’ classes at school!
