- Now you want to fold down the first leg you folded so it points out like a beak but make sure it’s not too big out then on the sides of the crane fold down the wings and you got a crane

- The last touch is to add a peace symbol on it on the wings for peace or anything you like

- You can push the two wings out and it should be nodding the cranes head, hold the crane firmly from the bottom but don’t wreck it. And give yourself a pat on the back for making an origami crane
