Day Nine: An Origami Crane

I wasn't able to fold a thousand of these today (or is it ten thousand?), so we won't achieve world peace tonight, but I did manage to get a fairly decent one my second try, so it's a start. I wish my points were sharper, though. I need a lot more practice. I added some beads that I had; I would have liked a crystal to catch the light.

I used some lovely, double-sided paper in a package of Kimono patterns, from Tuttle Publishing, in Rutland, VT; Tokyo; and Singapore. The paper was printed in Hong Kong.

A Japanese art form, that travelled all the way to Vermont, then back to the Far East, before ending up in Boulder, CO.
