This is my favorite fold to date. The Crane is such a beautiful traditional Origami fold. I learned to first create a “square base” then a “bird base” and finally, complete the design.
For the first time, I was able to memorize the folds for an Origami model. So, I ended up folding lots of Cranes for practice and really feeling a sense of peace as I folded.
This is the last design in my book. I’ll make the effort to find other beginner-intermediate Origami designs on the web or in books from the library.
