How to Make Paper Heart Ring
List of Supplies
This origami project does not require any tool unless you’re using a sheet that has the same color on both sides. In that case, you will need a sharpie to fill the heart part of the ring to make it pop.
- Craft paper or origami paper – light or medium-light
Step 1: Base Folding
Take a piece of square paper and keep the colored side on the back. Fold it in half vertically and then unfold it again. Now align any one open side with the middle crease and fold. Fold the folded side in half.
Step 2: Base Folding (Cont.)
Similarly, fold the other side. Now unfold all the folds. Now, fold the square paper in half along the other side (horizontally) and then unfold. Notice the thinnest crease created in step 1, and fold the square sheet along a thin crease on any one open side.
Step 3: Starting the Heart
Turn the pattern to the other side (the colored side). Fold a corner (of the closed/folded side) inside and align it with the horizontal half-crease. Similarly, fold the opposite corner. Turn the pattern to the other side again.
Step 4: Working on Heart Pattern
Fold up the pointy side along the adjacent crease and turn the entire pattern to the other side. This part is a bit tricky so pay attention. Carefully lift up the right flap and bring the inner (closed) side outwards. Keep an eye on the thin crease lines; align the fold along the crease line near the outer side.
Step 5: Working on Heart Pattern
Flatten the right side with the pattern. Similarly, fold the left side. Fold 1/3 of the right flap inwards, diagonally. Similarly, fold the left flap.
Step 6: Working on Ring Band
Fold and tuck in the corner side of the flaps inside the fold (pocket) below it. The heart shape is complete and secured now. Let’s work on the square part of the origami pattern. Fold the square side along the thin creases.
Step 7: Working on Ring Band
Keep folding the square part along the thin creases until it reaches the bottom side of the heart shape. Coil the band part of the origami heart ring and join the open ends. You can insert one open side into the other open side but there’s a bigger chance of the band coming out. Use glue to join the sides and complete the paper heart ring.
