I'm busy, busy, busy with wedding stuff. Despite my pesky heart throwing me a minor curve ball, I am getting there, but with less than four weeks to go, I'd have to be! I'm making all our decorations by hand and wondered if anyone reading this would like to help by making one or two (or one or two hundred!) paper cranes? I'm hoping to have a curtain of 1000 cranes (and the good fortune they're meant to bring) at the entrance to our reception. I've got some friends and family on the case already, but I think they could do with some help and I love the idea of the cranes coming from all different places/people.
The cranes can be any colour, plain or patterned, any size (within reason - there are going to be 1000, hopefully, so we can't have MASSIVE ones) and they don't have to be perfect - there'll be no crane discrimination! You can find instructions all over the internet, e.g. here. Two of my friends who've been folding these for me were total novices a few weeks ago and are practically pros now.
If you're up for helping us out/practising your origami, you can email me or leave a comment and I'll get in touch to let you know where to send your folded friends. I'd probably need the cranes by August 22nd, to give me time to thread them together into a crane curtain. Whether you make 1 or 100, I'd be very grateful and happy to receive them and I promise to share pictures of the cranes in pride of place on the big day. Plus I think folders are party to the good fortune that 1000 cranes bring, if you believe in that sort of thing :)
