I folded this Origami Miniature Crane, as I am participating in the “Nanogami” Instagram Challenge. This weeks topic is the traditional Origami crane.

Tip: Papers I usually buy on Ebay or Origami Shop. Japanese books I tend to buy from CDJapan.

My Origami Miniature Crane was folded from paper with the measurements of 1.5 cm x 1.5 cm / 0.6 in x 0.6 in. I just used my fingertips and nails to shape and fold the crane. Other people prefer to fold with tweezers when they are folding tiny Origami.


If you happen to like this French striped Origami paper – you can find it in the Origami Shop!
