Origami Heart Envelope

There are several ways to fold envelopes in the origami technique. You can find at least 20 options on the Internet. We would like to offer you the most romantic origami envelope option. The instructions below describe a fairly simple method that allows you to make an original envelope in the shape of a heart.

Put a note in it and surprise your loved one!

Step 1

To begin with, you will need a standard sheet of office paper with a size of 210×247 mm. Ideally, if this paper will be pink in color, however, you should not limit your imagination!

Fold the sheet in half along the vertical axis and then return it to its original state.

Step 2

Make two vertical folds to the center fold line, and then return the paper to its original state.

Step 3
Step 4

Fold the right and left corners to the nearest fold line.

Step 5

Now fold the right and left quarters of the future envelope to the center fold line so that a triangle is formed at the bottom.

Step 6

Make three inward folds as shown in the photo.

Step 7

Spread first the right pocket and then the left pocket and flatten them evenly.

Step 8

Office paper requires more smoothing than origami paper.

Step 9

Which means you should put a little more effort here.

Step 10

The bottom part of the figure already looks like a heart. Now make two inward folds from the center of the heart to the edge of the figure, as shown in the photo. Then unfold these bends.

Step 11

Fold the figurine crosswise and then lift half of the envelope.

Step 12
Step 13

Fold the front of the envelope down to reveal a heart.

Step 14

Turn the heart envelope counterclockwise so that you can see the backside.

Step 15

Make two diagonal folds as shown in the photo.

Step 16
Step 17

Again turn the envelope with the heart toward you.

Step 18

Press the heart to the horizontal surface of the paper. The hardest part of the job is already done!

Step 19

Fold the right and left corners to the nearest folding lines.

Step 20

Fold the right and left sides along the existing folding lines to the center so that they are under the heart.

Step 21

Fold the top right and left corners so that they meet at the center line. This will be the flap of the envelope.

Step 22

Fold the flap over and tuck it under the heart.

Step 23
Step 24
Step 25


You can put the note in the envelope or write it directly on the paper before you start making up the present. It makes a great gift for Valentine’s Day, doesn’t it?
