Making a heart out of a gum wrapper can be a fun and creative DIY project. With just a few simple steps, you can transform a regular gum wrapper into a cute and heartfelt token. Here’s how to make a heart out of a gum wrapper.
First, start by unfolding the gum wrapper completely. Smooth it out so that it lies flat on a clean surface. Ensure that there are no creases or wrinkles on the wrapper.
Next, fold the wrapper in half lengthwise, aligning the edges carefully. Press down firmly to create a sharp, crisp fold. This will form the base of your heart shape.
Now, take the top left corner of the folded wrapper and fold it diagonally towards the center of the bottom edge. Repeat this step with the top right corner, folding it towards the center as well. You should now have a triangular shape with a pointed bottom.
To create the rounded top of the heart, fold the bottom point of the triangle upwards, towards the center. Press down firmly to secure the fold. This will form the top of your heart shape.
Finally, fold the two sides of the triangle inward, meeting at the center. Press down firmly to secure the folds. You have now successfully made a heart out of a gum wrapper!
This DIY project is not only a great way to exercise your creativity but also a unique way to repurpose a gum wrapper. You can use these cute gum wrapper hearts as decorations, gift toppers, or even attach them to a handmade card. So, grab a pack of gum, start folding, and have fun making your own gum wrapper hearts
