My name is Emily, I’m going to show you how to fold an origami paper crane. First, fold in half. It’s very precise- you might want to use chopsticks. Fold in half once more. Take the following corner, make a crease, open that up. Take this point, make sure it matches with this point, but make a mountain fold down the center, like so. So you have a square. Flip over. Do the same thing on the opposite side. Make a crease. Put this corner to that corner. Make another square. With the open side facing you. Make sure it’s even. Crease all the center lines. Make sure the open point is towards you. Take each corner, fold to the middle. Do the same on the other side. Now you’re going to take the inside point on the bottom and pull upwards. Make sure its nice and tight, like so. And then you crease along the previous fold. Take each corner, fold in the center again, like so. Do the same on the opposite side. And take the bottom corner and fold again. Each corner meets up at the top. You open like so. Pull the opposite corners apart. You can fold the wings and the head. That’s the last step in a finished paper crane.
