Here is a charming and easy-to-make origami present, which recycles an old paper fold:
- In a rectangular piece of paper about 5″ x 3″ write a ‘love message’ to the recipient of your gift.
- Seal it by rolling and pressing it into a stick as the ones shown in the pictures. (Photo steps here).
- Create as many different messages as you want, put them into a transparent container or tie some up using a beautiful ribbon or string, and give them to a person you love.
For his birthday I wrote to my husband one hundred and fifty-two love messages and presented them to him in this fashion. He decided to open one message a day. He calls them “love candy.” Recently, he has been opening one per week because he doesn’t want to run out of them too fast.
I think that the time has come to give him some more!
