Folded paper Heart


Few weeks back I visited our local library and in the lobby they had the pages of one of the books folded to form the work 'Read'. I was fascinated and came back home and searched how to make these folded pages art. Well, I didn't fold pages to make a word, but I started small and made this heart. And I love it!!



I will try making a word next, but I am happy with heart for now..:)

I was already excited when I was half way through and it started to look like a heart.


All done!!


I will post the tutorial to make these hearts and other designs soon...so stay tuned..:)


I did make the tutorial to make this heart. You can find it here.
