Kissing Cranes Heart Picture Frame - New Origami Model for Valentine's Day

I was trying to decide what to fold for Valentine's Day, and this was what I came up with.
I modified the design of my model Kissing Cranes Picture Frame and obtained a heart shaped model that is more suitable for Valentine's Day. The model is called Kissing Cranes Heart and this is what it looks like:

Kissing Cranes Heart Picture Frame - New Origami Model for Valentine's Day

If you insert a picture or a note in the center of the model, it can be used as a picture frame or as a Valentine's Day card.

You can find the diagram here. Although the diagram was drawn with two color paper for clarity purposes, I like to fold the model with paper that is the same color on both sides. It's better to use a thin paper.
The model in the picture was folded using a 12" (300 mm) square of thin washi paper. The final model is approximately 6" x 6" (150 mm x 150 mm). The note in the center is 3" x 3" (75 mm x 75 mm).

Please don't forget to leave me your comments.

Happy Valentine! (in advance).

I'm stuck on step 4. Can some link a video or provide further explanation?

You can start folding the "heart", explained in my video "Origami Heart Flower and Heart" (you can find it in the Videos page of this blog). Both models start start in a similar way.
I hope this helps.

Thank you! I managed to do everything except for step 19. I'm not sure how the reverse folds work there. Any tips for that? I can do everything else though!
