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. An origami crane tutorial has been on my to-do list for years, it’s pretty silly not to have one, especially seeing as the Paper Kawaii logo is a crane, well here it is!
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.
