Happy Valentines Day!
I created a tutorial for my heart I created a while. You will probably need to know some origami terms to create it. Other than that it should be simple. I've made this with 3X3" paper not sure if it will be stable with the usual 6X6". There's a .pdf for download if you want it. Anyways good luck all.

I don't get it at all - that is, after step 15. I have no clue what to do with the paper in step 16 >.<
I absolutely adore the heart itself though, from my point of view it's unique... could you help me a bit with that step please? and then we can hope I am clever enough to continue on my own

I'd be glad to help, although I'm more of a visual person myself I'll give my best shot at explaining it.

When doing step 16 you should repeat what you do in steps 9-11 on both sides with the creases in place.
What should happen is your diagonal fold that reaches from the center of the paper to the corner will align 
from the tip of the triangle you put in the center from step 15, up to the other corner of the paper.

Another way to pull it off would be to just fold the horizontal crease on the paper till it touches the back part
from 15 and fold the diagonal as it is creased so that the end of that horizontal crease reaches the top center 
of the paper. From there you would just need to inside reverse fold the edge in and you would have it.

I hope one of those explanations will provide you with progress.
If you'd like I could take a couple of pictures detailing the process a little better. 
Thanks for taking an interest in my paper heart and good luck with the rest.

I got to the thirteenth step but then I missed! I do not understand how to continue!
Could you help me please? much appreciated

On step 13 you just have to fold the Tip of that triangle to the edge of the flap that you folded down in 12)A. Beyond that you unfold the paper and continue on with 15. If you need any pictures or more instructions I'd be happy to help.

Amazing! :D
I just made it, had to puzzle a little though. The instructions are hard to understand sometimes. But since I could make it it's good! ;) :dance:

Sorry the directions are difficult to understand
sometimes, but glad to hear you were able to make it.
Maybe at some point I'll revise it.
