Valentine (Design by Robert J. Lang)

This particular design has been on my to-do list for quite a while, now and what better time to fold it than February when most people are head over heels in sending out Valentine’s.

As with any design of Robert Lang, this is a great design with remarkable detail and incorporates precise folds and even color changes. I enjoyed folding this and this is, in fact, my first fold of the model.

Paper to use:
The best paper to use for this would probably be duo-colored tissue foil or even if you want to paste a contrasting colored sheet of paper to red unryu, it would make a nice sheet to fold. I haven’t tried any of these, but I would definitely think of these options the next time I fold this.

Since this was my first fold, I used common Kami paper measuring 9 inches in size, which wasn’t duo-colored unfortunately. The folding sequence involves reverse folds and small sinks ate the end in order to hold the heart together or flat, rather.

How to fold Robert Lang’s Valentine:

The diagrams to this design can be found in Robert Lang’s books – Origami Design Secrets – Second Edition.

Sara Adams has created a 4 part instructional video on folding this model. She has explained the folding sequence very nicely and provides helpful points on the tricky sinks, reverse folds and such.

Have a great week ahead!
