How to make a gum wrapper heart (step by step)

To make a gum wrapper heart, you will need a gum wrapper, scissors, and a lighter or matches. To make the heart, follow these steps:

  1. Start by folding the gum wrapper in half lengthwise, so that the two long sides are touching.
  2. Next, fold the wrapper in half again, this time making a crease along the center of the wrapper.
  3. Unfold the wrapper, and fold the two outer edges towards the center crease, so that they overlap slightly.
  4. Fold the bottom edge of the wrapper up towards the center crease, making a triangular shape.
  5. Fold the top edge of the wrapper down towards the center crease, making a second triangular shape.
  6. Finally, use the scissors to carefully cut along the two triangular folds, trimming off the excess paper and creating the shape of a heart. You can also use the lighter or matches to carefully seal the edges of the heart together, giving it a more polished look.

Once you have made your gum wrapper heart, you can experiment with different designs and patterns by cutting different shapes into the wrapper before you fold it into a heart. You can also try using different colors of wrappers to make your heart more visually interesting. Have fun!
