About the program: Have fun making a Victorian Puzzle Valentine!
This origami-inspired structure is folded from one large square of paper.
It can be decorated with words and images on both sides and viewed 6 different ways. We will spend a few minutes viewing the history of this Valentine and make an easy pattern. Then we will fold our good paper and lay out our plan for the final project. No prior skills are needed and the materials list is short (use what you have on hand). You can also come up with variations and other uses for the structure.
Come spend a couple of hours being creative!
