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.
