Paper cranes for the Christmas tree

This year I’m doing something different with the main Christmas tree; it’s a helter-skelter tree no longer! The kids each have mini trees of their own to decorate to their hearts’ desire (read: colored lights), while the main tree now harbors nests and seashells and paper cranes, (illuminated only by white lights, of course).

I’m folding the cranes from silver origami paper and white mulberry paper, according to the very clear directions found here.

The mulberry paper is 12×12 standard scrapbooking size; it wasn’t hard to find at Paper Products Etc. on Winslow Way.

I bought the origami paper at one of my favorite Seattle stores, Uwajimaya.
