The Traditional Crane
Here you are gonna learn, how to fold a crane, which is a traditional model from Japan. This is probably one of the first models I learned to fold. I can't even remember when I folded my first crane, but since then I folded many hundreds of them.
It is an old Japanese believe that if you fold 1000 cranes you'll be granted a wish!
You have to start with a Birdbase.
2. Repeat step 1 on the other side.
6. The complete crane. You can shape the body by pushing the top point down, pulling the wings a little bit apart or blowing air into the tiny hole at the bottom of the body.
