Tips and suggestions for making the Blossom Crane

  • Thin and soft paper is ideal for the Blossom Crane.
  • In the video the crane model is demonstrated using kami paper.
  • When folding this Blossom Crane for the first time, use a piece of paper at least 8 x 8 inches (20 x 20 cm.) or bigger.

Origami terms to note:

  • Precrease: Marking the paper by folding and unfolding. When we precrease, we are setting the stage for later steps in the folding process. Precreases are usually made when we begin a set of folds.
  • Reverse fold: to turn a fold from valley into a mountain or the other way around, mountain into a valley.
