Origami, or Japanese paper folding, is actually quite simple to do. Sure there are some more intricate designs, but for the most part if you take the folding step by step then you’ll be successful. The art of this type of paper folding dates back to as early as 1603 so this particular Valentine craft can also be a history lesson, too. That’s why it’s perfect for a school Valentine party!
