Yes, I popped a sneaky Valentine’s in the Title.. simply because, these would indeed be a cute little love note you could leave in someone’s book come Valentine’s Day (a simple Valentine’s Day STEAM Activity). in the meantime, I think these Heart Corner Bookmarks are simply ADORABLE and lovely and something you can learn super quick to make and make just because – in fact, sod Valentine’s Day, make one today and pop it into someone’s book as a surprise today. I am sure it will make them smile. Afterall, we can show people that we love them at any time of year, right!?
NOTE: this post was originally published in Aug 2015 – we rebulished it for you today, as we thought you would love to see it again!
Once you have had a go at making these, I think you will make them all the time. You can probably use a bus ticket or a chewing gum wrapper to make it whilst on the go! So easy and simple and looks fun. Technically these Heart Bookmarks are Kirigami, as you are not starting off with the traditional Origami Square piece of paper – but HALF of a square piece of paper, but if you are starting out on Origami, I think this is a great simple and easy Origami (like) project for you to do.
We have lots more Origami (and Kirigami) Projects for you to browse, please do take a look! The Origami Bunny Craft and the Origami Butterflies are SUPER popular. And don’t forget the more Kirigami-esque Monster Corner Bookmarks. LOTS of easy paper crafts for you to check out and have a go at!
Kirigami Heart Bookmarks Materials:
- All you need is a strip of paper with one dimension being twice as long as the other – e.g. take a square piece of origami paper and cut it in exactly half.
- (Optional – a little piece of tape)
