“Origami (from ori meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper”) is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD at the latest and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form.”

The so called Lucky Hearts are mainly significant to middle school and high school students. These hearts are used as gifts, mostly between couples, to signify how much you love or care about someone. The amount of hearts that you give someone has significance as well. If you are not giving the hearts as a gift of love, then the hearts can be used to make a wish.
Each heart is carefully folded from traditional Japanese Washi Chiyogami paper.
