I’ve been in love with this giant geometric heart from Oleander and Palm for so long, and I wanted to make a smaller version of it. You’ll have to hop over and see hers, it’s super cool.
For this smaller version of it, I used some paper from my friend Jen’s paper line. This cute metallic polkadot paper, along with two solid pieces of card stock paper is all you need. Oh and a paper trimmer or regular scissors will work great too.
Cut the paper into small squares:
– 3 squares for the solid color
– 4 squares for the patterned paper
– 3 squares for the other solid color
Next cut all the squares into triangles. Then the fun part…arrange all the triangles into the shape of a heart! A geometric heart! I’m not much of math girl (at all), but I loved seeing it laid out like this in rows of same color triangles and then seeing it take shape into a heart, if this is math…then maybe I do like math! (I joke ;)) You could make one of these in any size. It would be super cute really small on the front of a Valentine’s Day card.
Here’s a fun little stop motion video I shared on Instagram to show the shapes moving into place.
Happy Valentine’s Day paper crafting! L-O-V-E is all you need. <3
