Why: Leyla posted a photograph of this idea on her wonderful Origami Spirit website a week or so before Valentine’s day, and I thought it would be a fun gift to make for Jon. I hunted up a variety of commercial papers I had, in various colors and finishes (and a couple of slightly different sizes, just for a little variation.) The twig came from my backyard (managed to find one sticking out of the snowpiles), the ceramic pot from the garage, and the clear marbles from the craft shelves. A little hotglue later, voila!

The heart design is simplicity itself – and very satisfying to fold, with a neat 3D effect at the end.

Awesome! Thanks, Leyla!
