Long Heart-Bookmark

origami Heart Bookmark This long heart bookmark is relatively easy to make and it works great as a book mark or as “heart on a stick” type of decoration. You can make them red or pink and put them in a vase like a bouquet of flowers.

The size of the paper does not matter very much so long as it is large enough for you to work with. The longer the paper, the longer will be the stem of the bookmark. In this example, the paper was approximately 2 inches wide and 9 inches long.
