Origami ๐Ÿ’™ for the NHS

April 12, 2020

One of my hobbies is origami, the art of paper-folding.
I’ve decided to fold NHS blue hearts ๐Ÿ’™ย and send them on cards to people I know who work at the NHS, in hospices, and in care homes.

Final model


It will take time to create the cards, but that is time for reflection and to thank all front-life workers who are doing their best to help people who are poorly with Covid-19 and all the other workload hospitals, hospices and care homes help with. And this is not forgetting GP surgeries, pharmacies, care in the community, bus drivers, binmen, policemen…the people we all rely on without really thinking how important they all are to every one of us.

Folding instructions

Others might like to do the same. Many people will have NHS workers and other front-line workers in their families or amongst their friends. If you would like to fold an origami ๐Ÿ’™ for them, I have written folding instructions and they are here:

Good luck, and I hope you enjoy the challenge of folding a ๐Ÿ’™ย heart (they’re not easy, and if you make one, well done!).
