These opulent red hearts are made using luxe recycled handmade paper that's made with left over cotton from the garment industry in India, it has an almost velvetty fabric feel to it. The paper is printed with a traditional Indian motif in gold.
Each decoration is made from one single piece of paper that has been folded to create a heart shape. This particular style of origami heart is single sided, with folds visible on the underside. (I do have double sided origami hearts available in a different colour, but this handmade paper is not suitable for the number of folds required for that style.) Traditional origami is not glued and, whilst I stick to that tradition in nearly all of my origami creations, these red hearts do contain a tiny dab of glue on two folds on the underside to prevent the folds from springing up.
The decorations measure approx L 6.7cm and come with a 6 cm green wire hook for hanging, however, they can be made with a cotton string loop instead (email us via the Contact Us page to let us know if you prefer a string loop).
Each pack contains three hanging hearts.
Note: Photos show the hearts without their hooks as these are only added once an order is placed.
