Step By Step Instructions

Step 1: Choosing the Sticky Note

Take a sticky note pad and take off a sticky note carefully. Place the note on a flat surface. Keep the sticky side of the note facing up. 

Step 2: Creating Half-Diagonal Creases

Hold one corner of the note and join it with its opposite corner to make a half-diagonal fold. Unfold the diagonal fold.

Now, make another diagonal fold by joining the 2 other corners. Unfold the last fold. This should create criss-cross half-diagonal creases.

Step 3: Forming the Top Side of the Heart

Hold any one of the corners of the sticky note and join it in the center (the intersected point of both diagonal crease lines). This is the top side of the heart.

Step 4: Forming the Bottom Side of the Heart

Hold the opposite corner to the previous one and draw it to the other side of the current pattern. This is the bottom side of the heart.

Step 5: Forming the Right Side of the Heart

Hold the right side of the current origami pattern and align the right half of the longer side with the middle crease/line of the current pattern.

Step 6: Forming the Left Side of the Heart

Similarly, hold the left side of the current origami pattern and align the left half of the longer side with the middle crease/line of the current pattern. The origami heart base is ready. Turn the current origami pattern to the other side.

Step 7: Folding the Top Corners

Fold in the 2 corners at the top side of the origami heart pattern.

Step 8: Forming the Side Craese (Right)

Fold the right corner inside by a cm. Unfold the last fold. This should leave a crease.

Step 9: Folding Along the Side Crease

Fold the 1 cm creased part inwards along the crease.

Step 10: Fold the Left Side

Similarly, fold the left corner of the origami pattern. Turn the pattern to the other side (the right side) to see the finished origami pattern.
