An Origami A Day: Crane

We start our blog with something simple. A popular origami and may be the most origami being fold around the world, origami crane. 

In Japan, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true. The Thousand Origami Cranes has become a symbol of world peace through the story of Sadako Sasaki, a Japanese girl who tried to stave off her death from leukemia as a result of radiation from the atomic bombing of Hiroshima during World War II by making one thousand origami cranes, having folded only 644 before her death, and that her friends completed and buried them all with her. (This is only one version of the story. Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum states that she did, in fact, complete the 1,000 cranes.)

To fold the crane i will guide you. Hmmm, would you like a diagram or video? For me video is the best as we can see details on how we can fold the paper but not all can access to high speed internet and follow the video. So i provide all of you with diagram and video. Please comment so that i can improve this blog for you. 

Here is an aid for you if you wish to fold it. There are a lot of variation but i think this is the simplest one.
