Double Bypass Origami Heart

I was being so silly when I named this post “Double ByPass”.It’s an SEO nightmare of a name, but truth be told naming it, “make two origami hearts from one piece of origami paper” was long and really dull. —I can only handle so much of the SEO stuff before I give up and just do what I want–.  So anyway, this is quite possibly the simplest origami heart you will ever make for Valentine’s Day. It’s easier enough for a kindergartener in my opinion. So this is definitely a great Valentine’s kids craft. In fact most of the hearts in origami are simple enough for kids. Watch the video for a quick way to do this. And I admit this heart origami cheats, it’s kirigami.  You cut the paper in half that’s why you can make 2 hearts.

Can I use Printer Paper to make an Origami Heart?

Don’t try to just make this origami with printer paper. The ratios are wrong. You need the origami paper to be twice as wide as it is tall.  You’d need to cut basic printer paper to 5.5” by “11” to get the same results.

You can put this origami on several things as it folds flat.  Cards are a great option for valentine’s.

Folder Beware:

This particular folding process can leave a white line in the center if you use origami paper that is white on on side and color on the other. For a heart fold that uses the whole paper and doesn’t leave the line no matter what paper you use. Check out Easy Origami Heart
