this weekend i sat at the dining table and worked on this paper crane project to help cheer up someone who is awaiting a liver transplant. in the past, i have tried to fold cranes but usually get all messed up and confused so i give up and am left with only a soggy piece of origami paper. the pdf file of directions that Julee posted are great and i was able to get thru all the steps easily ( just ignore picture #19). as origami paper i just used my usual computer paper printed with my art collages and scans of vintage hankerchiefs & pillowcases. they really made for some colorful cranes!
