This easy origami heart model was shown to me by the late Florence Temko, as such I name it Temko Heart in honor of her life-long contribution to paper arts. This paper heart is easy to make and can be accomplished in less than 5 minutes. It uses one square sheet of paper and requires that you tear the paper a little. No problem!
