Oragami Paper Cranes

After flipping through the latest Pottery Barn catalog I was inspired by one of their Christmas ideas, and thought it would translate well into the wedding scene (for December and January, that is). Dressing up small evergreen trees with red and white paper cranes, what a unique decor idea for your reception or ceremony!

According to the write up in the PB catalog; The crane is considered to be a sacred bird in Japan, and it is widely believed that any person who hand folds 1,000 paper cranes will be granted on with.I’m not sure if these fingers could stand folding 1,000 paper cranes… but if you started today, and folded about 22 cranes every day, you could have a grand by X-mas!

PB has the pretty paper, pictured above for sale, as well as a video demonstration. You could also get a variety pack of reds and whites at your local craft store, like Michael’s or Hobby Lobby.
