How to make a heart out of paper?

Hearts made of paper or other material are very often a manifestation of attention, even a declaration of love. What ways you can make a symbol of love from paper will help to understand our instructions.

## Woven heart of two colors paper

For work, take 2 shades of paper, scissors, simple pencil, ruler, compasses, stationery glue.

Now you can proceed to making the heart step by step:

- Initially, you need to prepare two halves of the heart of different shades. To do this, you need two pieces of rectangular paper, where the larger side will be ½ more smaller.
- Then using a compass, draw a semicircle on one side of the rectangle (on the short side of the shape), where the side length will besimultaneously with the diameter of a semicircle.
- Cut the semicircle along the marked lines. The rounded sides are both the tops of the heart.
- Now draw a square, measuring from the opposite side of the cut semicircle.Each side of the square is equal to the smaller side of the original rectangle.
- Next, divide the resulting square into 5 identical strips by drawing in pencil. Snip on drawn.
- Repeat steps 2-5 with the second rectangle.
- Now combine both figures into one, intertwining strips of different shades. Fasten the edges of the strips with glue.

Here is a wicker heart and ready. Now try to make another heart.

## Origami volumetric heart

- Take a sheet of rectangular paper of such a size that when folded in half it turns out two squares.
- Each of the visual squares is folded twice diagonally to make the letters “X” fold.
- Next, fold both squares inwards, so that two adjacent triangles come out.
- Now find the center of the triangles.
- Bend each part of both triangles to their vertices. Open the valves that turned out. There will be 4 of them, and they will look like 4 small squares.
- Bend one of the resulting corners in the opposite direction.
- Turn the figure over and fold the two adjacent corners.
- Now open the valves in place of the smallest squares that are on the front side. Valves should have 8 pieces.

So it turns out another original heart as a gift.
