1000 Paper Cranes

Is folding 1000 paper cranes an insane idea or just awesome?  Since I have my heart set on making it happen, I guess we will find out!  I don’t remember where I first saw paper cranes incorporated into wedding decoration, but after I saw a few photos I decided I need to make it happen.

An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury.  This is my excuse for why I want to try folding 1000 paper cranes.  Honestly, it looks awesome and fits in my DIY and small budget wedding.  The cranes can be used as decoration, especially if they are hanging from the altar or at the reception.

This is what made me fall in love with the cranes! Click on photo to see original source.
