Cranes and Flower Fanfare
My blog is a little quiet at the moment so I thought I’d reblog an old post with a bit of an update here. I took the cranes and some other origami and art to a local primary school shortly after I wrote the post. I was very surprised that it was the boys who were interested in the cranes. (They’re very pretty so I thought they would attract female admirers.) Anyway I gave the cranes away to the boys and they enjoyed zooming around the room with them!
The floral fanfare ended up in Japan as a thank-you gift for my penpal’s mother who had knitted me a fabulous two-bobbled hat.
I’ve just made a pile of cranes out of the little square pieces of washi paper that my Japanese penpal sent me. They are so pretty I think I might die from cuteness overload. The photo doesn’t do them justice. If you click on the picture you’ll be able to see them better. (The pen is there for size reference.)
I also added some 5-petalled lilies to the lily model. I’m calling it “Spring Herald”; the colour reminds me of snowdrops.
