Paper Crane

Intro into how to make a paper crane.

Step 1:

Start with a square piece of paper.

Step 2:

Fold it in half to create a triangle.

Step 3:

Fold it in half again, and then open up the top flap and fold down to make a square shape. Repeat on back side.

Step 4:

Fold down the sides to make a kite, repeat on the other side and then unfold the sides.

Step 5:

Open up a flap and fold along the creases we just made like so.

Step 6:

Repeat the fold on the other side so it looks like this. Then repeat on the back side.

Step 7:

Fold down the sides again like so. Repeat on the back side.

Step 8:

Take the left side and flip it over to the right like flipping a book page. Repeat on the other side.

Step 9:

Flip the wings up and then open the left side like you're flipping a page in a book. Repeat on the back side.

Step 10:

Fold down the wings, then bend down the remaining points to create a tail and head.

    This is a great paper craft project. I made about 1000 of these to use as decorations at my wedding.
