How to Make an Origami Heart

Surprise your hubby with a couple of adorable origami hearts!  These cuties are easy to make but look quite impressive.  Wouldn’t they be cute tucked into his wallet?!



For step-by-step directions on how to make this adorable folded love note, click on this Wiki page: How to Fold a Dollar into a Heart.

I had a bit of trouble following their instructions between steps 3 and 4- I wish they would have included another photo.  So, I watched this 3 minute You-Tube video, which illustrated the folding process in action.  Just in case you get stuck, here are 2 close up photos of the tricky parts:


During the process, you will create a little squares out of the corner edges of the dollar bill (next to my fingers).  Once your square is made, fold the edges in on themselves once again.

  1. My Husband just left today to fly back to Nashville, while we wait here to sell our house to be with him. I made one of these and stuffed it into his wallet. I can’t wait for him to find it!
