14 Days of Valentines - Day 8

Are you starting to  wonder what you're going to eat for Valentine's dinner..hmmm maybe Japanese? Well, today's project would be perfect for that!

All you need is a square sheet of paper 4.75" x 4.75". I found this cute heart print wrapping paper at the Celebrations store. Take the paper and fold it into thirds.

I usually roll it into thirds and pinch the ends to mark where I have to fold. Then, I refold it and crease it nicely. Unfold.

Fold the bottom right corner to the center, crease well.

Repeat with the left bottom corner. Unfold.
Fold in the bottom right  corner to the creased line. Crease well.

Repeat with the left corner.

Fold the right side flap in and align to the one-third crease fold. Crease well.

Repeat with the left side flap.

Fold in the bottom right corner to the center. Crease well.

Repeat with the left bottom corner. Crease well. You can see the heart taking shape now.

Turn the whole piece over.

Fold in the right side to the center. Crease well.

Repeat with the left side.

Turn over. Now, you can really see the heart shape.

Pick the piece up and tuck the straight edge into the back of the heart.

Ta Daa! Your heart is complete! What's it for?

It's a chopstick rest!

Although you think there are a lot of steps because of the number of photos, there really isn't. I just like to show the before and after each step. Thanks for stopping by today and hope you're having a Fun Saturday! Hmmm...maybe I'll have Japanese food tonight?
