Week 14 (Day 03): Valentine’s Day Wreath

Origami Valentine's Day WreathWreaths are great for any occasion and are a sure addition for Valentine’s Day. I found quite a few origami heart wreaths for Valentine’s day and actually thought that I could have a week of heart wreaths! Maybe I will do it next year 🙂

For now, here is a very pretty and elegant wreath, made from 8 heart units. Red and white hearts would look great, I admit, but I wanted to try out another combination. I think this orange and yellow combination looks great too.

The units are not very difficult to make. The are joined together with glue. But looking at how pretty the wreath is, even origami purists would be tempted to give it a go I think!

Week 14 (Day 02): Love Letter

Origami Love Letter
Francis Ow, the specialist in origami hearts, is the designer of this origami letter. The letter is pretty easy to fold and makes a great gift for Valentine’s day, though I don’t know how easy it will be to fold it back to the original shape, once unfolded! Will require some practise I think.

The heart doesn’t really show till it is locked into place, by inserting it under the triangular tab at the top (refer to the next picture).

I think the letter will look much better if folded from single sided paper, rather than paper with print on both sides. That will bring out the heart much better.
