The DIY Origami Crane is probably the most classic of all origami. Thousand Origami Cranes is a group of one thousand origami paper cranes held together by strings. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, so sometimes some girls make thousand origami paper cranes in order to be granted a wish to be together with their loved ones.
The DIY origami crane is perfect as a gift, as a decoration, or as the first step to making a senbazuru. The cranes are delicate, but surprisingly easy and fun to fold, so don’t hesitate to give this craft a try.
