1. For origami heart with a bow: Starting with a square sheet of origami paper, fold in half lengthwise, bringing top corner to opposite top one, and then unfold. Fold in half again, bringing bottom corner to bottom one, and then unfold.
2. Flip over the folded paper; fold in half on the diagonal, bringing bottom corner to top one, and then unfold. Fold in half again, bringing left corner to right one, and then unfold.
3. Flip over the folded paper and fold it, using the creases into a triangle.
4. Fold top point to align with a center crease, resulting in a trapezoid shape.
5. Open the vertical flaps on either side and fold them down to flatten.
6. Fold each of four outer corners to align with the center crease, resulting in two middle points.
7. Flip over the folded paper, fold the top edge in thirds, and reopen. Fold each half of the top edge on the diagonal, bringing two corners to align with the center crease.
8. Fold the upper corners into points and fold them again into the rounded tops of a heart.
