To this day, this Origami Heart tutorial is still one of my favorites. Apparently, it’s also a favorite of this site’s readers! 🙂 So, for this coming Hearts Day, let me share the video tutorial once more! Enjoy, lovers!
There are two holidays that spurs a frenzy of tutorials here on the site. The first is Halloween, the other is Valentine’s Day. Here’s a quick, easy, simple and painless heart-themed tutorial. Read on to learn how to make paper clip hearts!
I still remember how I learned to fold letters into origami hearts like these. It was sometime in highschool. I had received a letter folded into this cute little heart. I had left it in my room while I was off to school. When I got back home, that letter was unraveled on my bed. Whoever snooped to read it, couldn’t put back the humpty dumpty of a letter back together again. Did a heart-shaped letter scream love letter? I was pretty pissed off back then, but I find it extremely funny now. Read on to learn how to make an origami heart. (Scroll down to the very end to watch a video tutorial instead!)
Sorry the site has been quiet with the tutorials. It seems like I went through a holiday lull, and I wasn’t able to get back into the groove just yet. Here’s to hoping things get back to normal. Let’s start things up with a simple Valentine-themed tutorial everyone’s bound to love. Let’s try and stitch up some gift tags. (more…)
For the last week, I’ve been thinking of DIY/Tutorial ideas perfect for both Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year. The one thing the two occasions have in common was the color Red. So there I was, taking the last sip of my morning coffee when it hit me.
RED. VELVET. COFFEE.
Here’s the recipe I came up with!
You’ll need the following ingredients:
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder, Milk, Vanilla or Caramel syrup, Red food coloring, and coffee!
I’ve been using Torani and Da Vinci syrups, but pretty much any syrup will work.
I started off with a heaping teaspoon of cocoa, two pumps of syrup and red food coloring.
I added two shots of espresso, and stirred thoroughly.
I steamed some milk until was rich and creamy, and poured it into the espresso mixture.
Play around with the ingredient measurements until you get the combination that works best for you.
And for a fun and quirky finish, I scooped some frothy milk foam and made a heart!
In honor of Hearts Month, I’m resuscitating a post from last year!
