Create the Shape
Make a rectangle-shaped gum wrapper into squares by cutting off or tearing away one side of the wrapper. If the wrapper is twice the length of its width, fold it in half to form an oval. Decide where you want to cut the paper by folding and tearing the wrapper in half along the diagonal so that the shorter side is aligned to the longer side. Cut any excess paper to make a square, and then fold it in half in the opposite direction to form a second crease which splits it into four triangles.
Finish the Gum Wrapper Heart
Fold the corners down of the wrapper, except the bottom, to form a softer heart-shaped shape. The creases can be sharpened with a plastic card should you need to, but the gum wrapper should hold this shape without much effort. If you want to keep the heart intact for a long time and do not want it to begin breaking, apply tiny glue dots on the corners.
