The Garland of Hearts (Ghirlanda di Cuore) by Francesco Guarnieri. Folded and photographed by the designer. See PDF diagrams.

This modular garland, made up of eight three-dimensional hearts, can be a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, but also for Mother’s Day. Made in pink or light blue, it can be used to indicate the birth of a boy or girl.

It is best to use duo-colored paper, since the center of the garland shows the back of the sheet. You can make four units starting from one side of the sheet and four starting from the other side, assembling them in an alternating pattern. You can also alternate units made from two different duo-colored sheets.
