I love an assignment for inspiration to create, it’s like being commissioned to do something! So off I went and what I learned along the way is:
- You need to be quite precise (I love a legitimate excuse for guilt-free perfectionism!) to make them look good and “proper”. Make sure your paper is square and your folds are exact.
- If the paper is too thin it winds up looking more like a pterodactyl… See what I mean?!
- If the paper is too thick it’s unwieldy to work with and looks a bit clunky…
- Large ones look just plain awkward, smaller is better.
- And, just like the owls, I am now seeing paper cranes everywhere!
Melonaide was way quicker than I to action this idea and went the “extra mile” – hers look lovely. Visit here to check hers out – she even gives you a link so you can make them yourself (which is how I learned!)
