Learn how to fold a traditional origami crane or “Tsuru”. This iconic origami crane is easy to make with one sheet of paper. These look great as hanging decorations or just as they are.
I always meant to do an origami crane tutorial, it’s pretty silly not to have one, especially seeing as the paper kawaii logo is a crane.
The origami crane was a model that I always had trouble with, I could never make it look right. But each time I get new origami paper I make one, it’s a great model to test out how well the paper holds up.
I hope you like the tutorial, the paper I used is not a one I’d recommend but it’s good for seeing all of the creases.
If you’d prefer a photo tutorial, there is very clear one, available here.
