Have you ever folded the classic origami crane? Or perhaps the delightful flapping crane? If you have, you’ve had enough practice to try your hands at learning how to make this charming Stay-Home Origami Crane.
This origami model is a design of my friend Ng Boon Choon (Malaysia/Singapore), also known as Ah Boon.
Ah Boon designed and shared this model as a way to invite people to be safe and stay home in the time of the COVID19 pandemic.
But of course, those of us who love folding paper wouldn’t need a pandemic to want to stay home and make this ingenious origami model!
I’m very enthusiastic about sharing this model here on Origami Spirit. Thank you to Ah Boon for granting me permission to make a video and demonstrate how to make his wonderful Stay-Home Origami Crane.
I’m sure you too will love this version of the classic origami crane!
Tips and suggestions for making the Stay-Home Origami Crane
- When you fold it for the first time, use a paper square no smaller than 10 × 10 -inch. As you get practice, folding it with a smaller piece of paper will become easier.
- You need thin and crisp paper such as “Kami” –known in the US as “origami paper”. In the video, I demonstrated with kami paper.
- Paper of different colors on each side is ideal.
- Since Stay-Home origami crane folds flat, it’s an excellent model to keep on your wallet ready to charm somebody at any moment.
