Origami is a great way to show your creativity especially to someone that you like and today I'm going to show you how to create an origami heart. So if you look down here you can see I have a regular piece of paper this is a notebook size piece of paper. Actually a square to begin with and I just kind of, I kind of just creased the edge and ripped it off here. And as you can see I already got this pre-creased, and to get this pre-creased what you are going to do is your just going to fold over once like so, actually let's do it over on this side so we have the pink side showing. So we are going to flip it over like so, to make our fold here. We're just going to open this back up, we're going to fold again like so. And then basically what we're going to do is we're going to do what is called a water bomb fold. We're just going to take this and bring these two inside pieces in to meet like so and then crease the triangle over the top like this. So now with that done like that what we are going to do is we are going to pull up and we are going to crease here and here like we are going to go into a leaf fold. So now what we are going to do is we are going to take and bring these two ends, these bottom ends in like so. There we go. Now this is how it should look at this point. So now what we are going to do is we are going to take these corners and we are going to tuck them in, but first, actually that's a, yeah let's go ahead and take these and flip it over there we go. Fold this down first. There we go. Now we are going to take these corners and tuck them in to the points here. So to do that what we are going to have to do is bring this part up and fold it up to the tip of your triangle piece that you folded down on the backside. And after that's done you can just take these bring them up like so, crease them in both of them, so where it looks like that and just take it and slide them into your crease in your triangle or your over folds in your triangle. Like so. There you go, now we've got the bottom started, now to finish this off what we are going to do is we're just going to flip this over. What we want to do is we want to fold these points down to where they catch under your side here. Now this is going to be kind of up to you, to get it how you want to, to give it that point look on your heart. Get it like so and then just take the fold, your points here down on the back like so, and there you have it. Your origami heart. And make sure to give this to someone that you adore and have fun and enjoy your origami.
