Heart marks the spot


This is a very simple origami activity that will allow you to create a great heart bookmark for your favorite book in less than 5 minutes.

What you need:

Craft paper, any color, with patterns if you want.

What to do:

  1. Take a sheet of paper 6cm x 12cm. If you change the size, the smaller side is always half the
    Fold your paper lengthways down the middle.
  2. Fold the right side of your paper into the middle of the band as shown in drawing 2. Then do the same for the left side.
  3. Flip your folded construction around. At this point, you can place a small piece of tape inside the pointy part to prevent the two arms from moving apart. This will hold them together and make your bookmark stronger.
  4. Fold a small part of the top of the right arm onto itself, then bend the corners inward. Do the same for the left arm.
  5. Flip your construction around and there you are! A beautiful heart that will hold the page of the book you prefer.

You can add to this shape, decorating the paper with illustrations, stickers  stamps or paints; in fact that you have at home. You can even make a smaller heart in another color that you can attach to the first heart.

Great results guaranteed!
