Tomorrow it's Valentine's Day, and I think we should absolutely spread some love around.
The world needs it.
Last year I showed you how to make Japanese folding letters for Valentine, menko and tato, and made you a hidden heart origami letter. and this year I thought these might be fun....
They take five minutes to fold, and are made from a regular A4 sheet, so you don't even need to worry about square origami paper! I made you a PDF with a lot of red/pink patterns, and scaled the A4 dimensions a bit, to work around those unprinted edges all printed sheets must have. Just grab your scissors and cut away that edge.
Write a nice message to someone you think needs a bit of love, and fold it like this. Or use them for parties, wedding invitations or Christmas ornaments. I made a whole bundle, as you can see, and they ended up as a garland. They are actually very well suited for garlands, the construction has a natural slit to pull the string through, you'll see for yourself when you try.
Wanna see my garland?
