What you’ll need

  • 8.5x 11 Paper (red shown here)
  • Scissors

Step 3 Keep the paper folded in a small rectangle and cut up from the bottom corner halfway up the right side, making sure you are not cutting off the folded side. This is making the bottom of your heart.

Step 4 Cut a curve on the top half of your paper so that you’re making the top of the heart, making sure that the cuts don’t intersect and that you’re keeping some folded edge intact.
