To make this money hearts, it’s best to learn the 3 basic folds that you used in making origami.
The most common fold is the valley fold, this is when you simply fold a part of the paper forward along the designated fold line(dashed lines). Once folded, then folded. the paper forms a “V”.
The opposite of the valley fold, you need to fold a part of the paper from behind instead of folding it forward.
To use this technique, pry open the 2 layers of the paper slightly, then press and flatten the paper to make the fold.
