This six-fold heart is a variation of the two-fold heart. It adds 4 simple folds to make the heart more hear-shaped. And it's still very easy to fold in a few seconds!
Update: I was told that this heart has already been created by Jeremy Shafer more than 20 years ago!
To make a 6-fold heart in origami, please follow the instructions from this video on YouTube:
1. Start with a square sheet of paper (same color on both sides).
2. Make a fold to bring the lower right corner up between the two upper corners.
3. Then fold the model in two perpendicularly to the first fold you made.
4. This is the 2-fold heart.
5. Fold back the two top tips to make them more round.
6. Fold back the two outer tips to make them more round.
7. Turn the model to the other side. And here is your very heart-shaped heart!
This heart has only six folds, but it has a very pleasant round shape!
