Valentine’s Day is right around the corner already, and what better time is there than a holiday about love and friendship to make something handmade to show someone you care? Check out my favorite Valentine’s Day origami picks if you’re looking for a special craft to make as a gift!
If you want a unique card, try out Gudiya Art & Craft’s tutorial on how to make an origami pull tab envelope where you can write a special message!
I love anything candy-themed, so when I saw the Toy Box channel’s video on how to make an origami Sumikko Gurashi heart lollipop pocket featuring Shirokuma, I knew I’d found what I was making for my friends this year. It’s cute for storing a little piece of candy and taping to a small Valentine’s card.
They also have a video of a version featuring the Sumiko Gurashi Tapioca Pearls!
Kamikey Origami has a similar how-to for an origami cat-themed heart pocket if the person you’re giving it to is a big fan of cats and candy! This one is really cute and I like the examples using a variety of different origami paper so that each one is unique. I’ll probably make a few of these too.
If your motto is go big or go home when it comes to gifts, check out Shivani Creation’s 3D origami teddy bear! It’s very cute and is sure to impress anyone that receives it as a gift. It looks challenging, so I would not recommend trying it without a little previous experience with 3D origami!
Don’t forget to make yourself something to celebrate the day as self-care! Kamikey Origami has an adorable origami heart wreath tutorial that would make a lovely decoration just because, or even for a party.
And if you happen to be in need of a small box to give a gift in, check out Niceno1’s adorable chocolate cake origami box! It would be an extra thoughtful project since it could be used as a decorative storage box for small items afterwards.
