Even though I do love a good heart shaped craft I don't normally do a lot of decorating for Valentine's Day. Luckily a few hearts (or one big origami heart) here and there is all it takes to add a splash of colour and a little love to a room. This year the other half suggested making a heart shaped version of this 3D origami wall art and I thought sure, why not. Of course, it turned out to be a fantastic idea and I loved it so much I immediately took it apart so I could make it all over again and show you how to make one too ;)

SUPPLIES: Origami paper or gift wrap, a pair of scissors or a paper trimmerpva glue, a paintbrush and some string or yarn to hang.

I used a couple of sheets of pink and red lip covered gift wrap from Paperchase and the rest of the supplies I already had on hand so this was a really cheap project. In fact, I bought the gift wrap in the January sales so it only cost 25p a sheet. If you haven't got any origami paper gift wrap makes a good alternative.

Each pyramid is made up of 3 origami pieces slotted together. You can use the above photo as a guide to put your 3D heart together. You'll need to make at least 22 individual pieces. I find some pieces fit together better than others so it's a good idea to make a few spare ones as well.

When you're finished putting your heart together you need to secure all the loose side pieces with some washi tape. Use a paintbrush to apply some pva to the inside of each of the pyramids and leave to dry. Try not to apply too much glue as it can pool and leak through the top of each pyramid and trust me, you don't want to come back and find your origami heart stuck to the table. Once dry thread some string through the top of your heart and hang.

Hi, I'm Emma.

FREE PRINTABLE COLOURING PAGE BOOKMARKS.

Looking for free printable colouring pages for adults? Then look no further, these pretty, floral bookmarks are just the ticket. Print, colour and get reading!

PRINTABLE FLORAL COLOURING PAGE BOOKMARKS

Colouring books aren't just for kids any more. There's a huge range of colouring books aimed at adults as well. I’ve bought quite a few for myself recently and I have to say I’m a big fan of all Johanna Basford’s colouring books. They’re all beautiful but if I had to pick just one I’d have to Lost Ocean with World Of Flowers coming in a close second.

If you've been following along you'll know that one of the things I want to add 'more' of to my life is books. I used to read a lot and sadly in the last twelve months it's something I've gotten out the habit of doing. Two of my favourite ways to relax are reading and colouring so I thought I'd combine the two and make some printable bookmarks we can all colour in and use.

Download the printable using the link below and print on white cardstock.

Colour in. I like to use these blendable pencils to help create shading.

Cut out and use to help you remember where you last left off in any book.

Bonus step: Laminate your bookmarks to help them last longer. If you don't have a laminating machine you could use these clever self-laminating sheets instead.

DIY ORIGAMI STAR MINI TREE GARLAND.

DIY ORIGAMI STAR MINI TREE GARLAND.

The final countdown to Christmas has begun and I've got one last craft project to share with you. I picked up this adorable mini Christmas tree at my local supermarket and although it's actually covered in silver glitter I thought it looked a little bare. These origami lucky stars are the perfect solution. I used them as tiny tree toppers last year when I made these diy paper Christmas trees and this time I thought I'd string them up and use them to create a mini paper star garland. If you're still looking for some last minute decorations to deck your halls decorating some mini trees might be the answer, they'll make your home festive and bright in no time at all.

HOW TO MAKE DIY ORIGAMI STAR MINI TREE GARLAND.

To make the origami star:

1. Start by cutting up some strips of paper. If you want mini stars cut the paper into 12 x ½ inch strips.

2. Tie a loose knot in one end of the paper strip.

3. Pull it gently and press flat to make a pentagon.

4. Tuck the short end of the paper strip into the knot.

5. Wrap the long end around each side of your pentagon. It should naturally follow in the right direction. Keep going until you have a small tail piece left. Tuck the tail end securely into the knot.

6. Pinch each corner of the pentagon between your thumb and forefinger to make the star puff up. 

7. Thread the finished stars onto some cotton or embroidery thread and wrap around your mini Christmas tree. 

DIY ORIGAMI STAR MINI TREE GARLAND.

Super simple to make as all last minute decorations should be and the fact that they're cute as a button doesn't hurt either.

With the festive season fast approaching I wanted to share these easy paper star decorations with you. Regular readers will know I'm a big fan of all things paper especially simple projects that don't take up much time or money and I think you'll all agree that these 3D stars fall into both those categories. They're another one of those crafts that I recently remembered making in school so I decided to give them a go and see if they were as quick and easy as I remembered. They turned out to be one of simplest and fastest Christmas decorations I've ever made. It wasn't long before I had a whole bunch ready to hang.

MAKE YOUR OWN DIY 3D PAPER STAR CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS.

1. Take a square of paper and fold in half. Open out, rotate 90 degrees and fold in half again.

2. Open out and fold your paper in half again this time along both diagonals.

3. Flip the paper over and mark a little less than half way down each of the horizontal and vertical creases.

4. Cut down to the pencil marks.

5. Fold the paper in on each side of the cut  to form a point. Repeat on all remaining sides.

6. Apply glue or double-sided tape to 1 side of each of the points.

7. Fold 1 side of the point over the other and stick down. Do the same on the remaining points to make half a star.

8. Repeat the steps above to make the 2nd half.

9. Apply some more glue to the center corners or each point.

10. Stick both halves together making sure the points are at 45 degrees from each other.

11. Leave to dry and hang.
