3D Origami Hearts -create your own origami hearts out of old book pages. Perfect for Valentine’s Day decor, wedding decor, or a baby nursery.
What’s better than a bowl full of hearts for Valentine’s Day? Nothing. And these 3D Origami Hearts are super easy to make too.
For this project, I made lots and lots of the 3D Origami Hearts out of
- plain white paper,
- brown kraft paper,
- old book pages
Some of the book pages were painted with pink watercolours before I folded them, for a little bit of pretty colour. You can make your hearts as big or small as you like.
Origami is one of those things that is easier to explain in a video than in writing, so…
I had to get brave and try something new.
And it raised all those feelings in me that I don’t like. Feelings like…I don’t know what I’m doing. It even made me a little bit grumpy.
But then my YouTube watching 11 year old daughter Paige helped me out…well basically did it for me. And she was really patient, and kind, and encouraging, and sweet.
This bowl full of hearts project, ended up reminding me what amazing hearts my home is full of. It made me so grateful for my girls, and my sweet husband, and that all the answers to my questions are on-line, and that an old dog can learn some new tricks. haha.
So, here’s our first ever Life is a Party YouTube video! (With special thanks to Paige, Maddie, and Roland)

I added my finished hearts to a wooden bowl for some fun Valentine’s Day decor. These would also be really fun given as Valentine’s. I think they would also be great as part of the decor for a baby or wedding shower. You can make them in any colours, and since they’re just paper, they’re really inexpensive to make.
With a bowl full of hearts for Valentine’s Day, life really is a party!
