Colorful Paper Cranes

Mar 21

I think paper cranes are officially becoming a new love of mine. In general I am in awe of all varieties of paper crafts and I’ve grown really fond of the symbolism of love and peace that origami cranes are said to represent in Japanese culture. Particularly fitting given recent events in Japan, don’t you think? According to legend, those who fold one thousand paper cranes will be granted their heart’s desire. I love that. And I adore these paper cranes in particular. A rainbow of love, peace and hope.
