A box with a heart, which is also an action origami model. When things go wrong, the heart can be reshaped into a broken heart. The heart itself can be tessellated. In this case I call it Fragile Heart Tessellation (fragile because it can easily be broken).

The heart itself uses a 12×10 grid and the whole box a 16×16 grid.
