Create a Shape
Take a squared piece of a gum wrapper and fold it into half joining corner to corner. Ensure the wrapper is turned so it would seem to look like a diamond. Once done with this part, twist the edge point downwards so it will empower the bowed edge to arrive at the base point.
Well, if your gum wrapper isn’t in a square shape, you can use a scissor to make that paper a squared one. This can be precarious to cut a paper and make all its sides equivalent, therefore, be careful and cut the wrapper cautiously.
Now, overlap the square covering corner to corner to make a triangle. Then, crease the prolonged closures of the triangle to make another triangle. Ensure to press the lower part of the folds to make them even.
Afterward, check for alignment. Now open the folds completely.
Make the First Folds
At this point, turn up one pointed tip of the squared gum wrapper in a way so the tip arrives at the very focus of the square. Make sure to make that fold even. Then, overlay the opposing tip of the other crease to such an extent that the tip contacts the top border of the first fold. Once more, smooth the fold. Now, overlap the left and right boundaries upwards to adjust obliquely in the middle.
Make a Heart Out of the Wrapper
The last step on the most proficient method to make a heart out of a gum wrapper includes using the folds you have made to make a heart shape. Overlap the left and right folds to meet at the center of the paper, then overlay the two folds towards the center of the paper. Don’t try to fold the base point. Now, it’s time to turn the gum wrapper to see the eventual outcome, your cute little heart is ready.
Note: In some cases, the collapsed tips may not remain level. To achieve the best outcome, you can tape the edges down with transparent tape.
