Step 1: Materials and Tools
Recently I have become some what addicted to dipping things in Plasti Dip www.plastidip.com. The stuff is originally intended to create rubber tool handles. But you'd be surprised how much fun it is to play with.
- Printer Paper 5 inch by 5 inch
- thin gauge wire
- Plasti Dip
- scrap piece of wood, about two feet long
- ribbon or string
- wire cutters
- 2 spring clamps
Step 2: Fold an origami crane
I started with 5 inch by 5 inch plain white printer paper. Anywhere from 4 to 6 inch paper squares should get the job done.
I recommend folding 5 cranes to start.
Step 3: Cutting the wire
Step 4: Forming and setting the wire
Poke the sharp end of the wire through the bottom of the crane and pierce the back.
Fish the wire all the way through, setting the "J" in the hind quarters of the crane.
Make sure the wire is secure. Pinch the wire if you need to.
