Introduction: To Make a Paper Swan/Crane by Who Else But SeaLion

About: i'm a seal!

Note: this has nothing to do with to kill a mocking bird, nor should one even use the finished product as a blue jay or mocking bird...plus i will not be responsible if more and more birds show up on ur window side.

let us proceed...

Step 1: Lets Start Building...

ok...for this...i think i shud quit talking and giving instructions...instead...i'll give visual aids...
i.e. a video!


Step 2: Finishing Touches and Talcum Powder...

to finish off your bird...you can do the following:
- add eyes and beak
- bird markings
- curl the wings more to make its look neater
- neaten up the edges

You can also make a few more of them varying their sizes to make a whole flock. Using string and a needle, carefully sew through the centre of the body from the back of the bird down to the bottome where u'll find theres a hole. once you're satisfied with the however many cranes you have sewn up in a string, you can hang it beside your window, anywhere indoors really...

    So why the lie above!!!! "This is a private video" Is this an illegal lead on to get one's "private" account information and then give you nothing? Not very friendly to the public are you?

    I might've made it after the amount of abusive comments I've received from other youtube users...I'll make it non-private when I have time. Sorry!

    Yay! I have a set of instructions for this that came with my origami paper, but they were terrible. Being able to see you in action doing it was much more helpful than those terrible drawings (I swear they were made in msPaint) :P


    PS: This is an Instructable. ;-)

    well i think it qualifies as an instructable.. viedo's quite straight foreward and clear.. of course i've been doing origami since elementary school and the crane is the first thing i learned so i can't really judge from the view point of some one new to it (i can and have folded cranes blindfolded)

    meh, its kinda for my friend who can't really follow along with my folding...but as u prolly know i can't dedicate it only to 1 person...so i dedicate it to all who want to learn :)...and of course watch me kill time by making a 1hr long instructable...least it took me 1 hr...even vid took me 30minutes...

    Although technically an Instructable, it's a visual aid. It's not bad that you're using a video to explain yourself, but us 56K users (I live in a place where that's all we can get, unfortunately) would rather have actual instructions. Combining the two would make for the best Instructable.

    And if you're worried about time, you should know that you can make part of an Instructable and then work on more later.

    Well, I mean it's just a video. Proof is you can't make a crane in two steps.

    not JUST a video. a video that i MADE cuz i suck at giving instructions, hence visual aid works better. do you know how long it actually takes for me to make one instructable with enought step so people who read along actually makes the thing? 1 HOUR, including making pretty pictures with annotations and all thsoe. plus! its too hard to describe, so video's better.

    Neat, but still not an instructable.
