How to Fold a Paper Crane
Yesterday I decided to teach myself (okay, get youtube to teach me) how to fold a Paper Crane. I read an article in the Sunday Times about a woman who for New Years Resolutions takes up new skills rather than giving things up. Last year among other things she learnt how to ride a motorbike, butcher an entire lamb and make paper cranes. I decided to start small and stick with the paper cranes!
I tried a number of tutorials, as I'm really not good at this sort of thing and eventually I found this one the best. I'm not going to lie - the first one I made looked awful and took me ages. By the third attempt though my cranes were looking decidedly crane-like, and I could do the whole thing without checking the instructions. I'm pretty chuffed with that!
