Origami Lucky Hearts

You've heard of lucky stars but have you heard of lucky hearts? They're constructed similar to lucky stars with only a few adjustments. They're also just as quick to make. Fill up a jar for a Valentine's Day gift or string one on thread to make a necklace. Click here for the video tutorial.

If you want the hearts to be sturdier, cover them in a coat of decoupage glaze. Besides making them sturdier, the decoupage will give them a nice shine.

I have tried so many times to make lucky stars, and have yet to master the folding. Mine always end up squashed. I can't wait to try these hearts!

We've been folding paper footballs forever, as a means to teach proper flag folding to our kids. Now we can make these hearts --- who knew!

Awesome sauce!

Whimsical Woodland,

I think the hearts are easier to make so I hope you have better luck with them than the stars.

One trick I've found with both is that you don't want to wrap the paper too tight or flat to start. If there's a little air between the layers, it's easier to puff them up.

These are so sweet, and the paper you chose to use is so pretty too!
