 Step by step video tutorial to make the 3D heart paper:

This paper heart is a cuddle and unique DIY decor or gift for your besties.

Step by step instruction to make a paper 3D heart:

  1. Grab the cardstock, quick dry glue, and scissors. You could use various kinds of cardstock: glitter, gloss gold… You could make your giant heart model from this template, too, just use much heavier paper (cardboard).
  2. Download and print the free templates on the A5 size cardstock, from 160gsm to 220gsm. You could print it on the larger size of paper.
  3. Cut and fold with the help of ruler ( find my new tip and technique in my new tutorial to make paper high heel)
  4. Use a syringe to glue the tabs which have the same number ID together, to form the 3D heart shape. White glue works well on normal cardstock, but UHU glue is used for glitter/gloss cardstock.
  5. You could leave 1 tab unglued to open and put a piece of paper of your love message in the heart model.
  6. By changing your size, paper texture, paper color, embellishments and whatever you could think of, you would have your own style heart.

    I thought the template is FREE. So why the watermark on it?

    • August 27, 2018 at 3:56 am

      It’s free for you to use and make your craft, I don’t sell this, but it’s still my own design, my copyright, and I earn my living from the ads running on my blog. If there’s no watermark, people will steal my design.

    Any suggestions about putting the last piece into the model ??

    • June 19, 2018 at 10:13 am

      Hi Don, I usually glue the most difficult part first, and the easier part later, so I just use a toothpick to help for the last piece. Hope this help.
