The Origami Crane a favorite piece of origami for all, me included. The Origami Crane is a slightly challenging piece, but take your time, line up your folds neatly and it will turn out great! Here are step by step instructions to help you succeed.
Many believe if you fold 1000 cranes you will get a wish. Personally, I love to fold them from everything I can! I have been known to fold them from cloth napkins at restaurants, programs at events, and little bits of scrap paper. They are just so fun to make, the Origami Crane a favorite piece of origami for you too?
Start the Crane with the Bird Base. The split section should be pointing down as shown.
Fold in the top layer of the bottom half to the center as shown.
Flip over and repeat last step.
Fold the two bottom points up as shown and crease and unfold.
Inside reverse fold along the creases just made.
Inside reverse fold again to make the head.
This is one stopping point for the Crane.
Optional: gently pull the wings open and push down the inside point to make a little box top and make the Crane more dimensional.
