    I've been making these cranes since I was 6 years old and am now 78! My dad taught me and we would 'make cranes' together. Did you know as a final step, gently open the 'base' of the lower back part of the wing (with a pen or stylus)...hold the 'breast' firmly and pull the tail of the crane-----it will flap its wings. Mine have never taken flight, but I think I've come close a couple of times :)
