Completed Project: Origami Crane Earrings (with Crane Tutorial!) Picture #1

Origami Crane Earrings (with Crane Tutorial!)

Sorry that this is so late. I was asked for a tut for my earrings a looong time ago.
It took forever to take pictures of each steps so sorry about the many pictures! I hope it's easy to follow and feel free to ask me any questions (:
/runs off to cut nails
  1. 1
    Step 1
    Start with a perfect square piece of paper. I use small origami paper that was precut. If there's a color you want to use, place the color side down.
  2. 2
    Step 2
    Hold the paper in half diagonally.
  3. 3
    Step 3
    Fold it in half again.
  4. 4
    Step 4
    Rotate so that the open ends face you and unfold to here.
  5. 5
    Step 5
    Fold one side so that it aligns with the middle crease.
  6. 6
    Step 6
    Repeat on other side.
  7. 7
    Step 7
    Unfold to here.
  8. 8
    Step 8
    Open one side but make sure you do not open past the middle crease.
  9. 9
    Step 9
    Open it wider, using a fingertip to secure the corner...
  10. 10
    Step 10
    ...squash it down until the tips touch.
  11. 11
    Step 11
    Press it down and crease. Repeat steps 8-10 for the other side.
  12. 12
    Step 12
    Fold one corner so that it aligns with the middle crease.
  13. 13
    Step 13
    Repeat on other side and crease.
  14. 14
    Step 14
    Fold top tip down and crease.
  15. 15
    Step 15
    Unfold the folds you just made. Flip over and repeat on the other side.
  16. 16
    Step 16
    Open the bottom but do not open past the top crease.
  17. 17
    Step 17
    Push in the side along the crease you made earlier. It should lay along the middle crease.
  18. 18
    Step 18
    Follow the crease all the way to the top and press down.
  19. 19
    Step 19
    Repeat on other side.
  20. 20
    Step 20
    Reinforce creases and press down. Flip over and repeat on other side.
  21. 21
    Step 21
    Fold one flap so it aligns with the middle crease.
  22. 22
    Step 22
    Repeat on other side. Flip over and repeat.
  23. 23
    Step 23
    Separate two flaps you just folded...
  24. 24
    Step 24
    ...and fold the front flap over.
  25. 25
    Step 25
    Repeat on other side.
  26. 26
    Step 26
    Fold the bottom tip up...
  27. 27
    Step 27
    ...until it meets the other tips. Crease.
  28. 28
    Step 28
    Flip and repeat on other side.
  29. 29
    Step 29
    Separate the flaps again...
  30. 30
    Step 30
    ...fold down and crease.
  31. 31
    Step 31
    Hold the paper so you can see one of the skinny tips. This is the "neck" of the crane.
  32. 32
    Step 32
    Open the neck a little and fold the tip down...
  33. 33
    Step 33
    ...and fold the neck close again. This is the head and beak of the crane! Yaaay.
  34. 34
    Step 34
    Grab the two large flaps and slowly pull apart...
  35. 35
    Step 35
    ...and the body will inflate! Your crane is now done! Yaay (:
  36. 36
    Step 36
    Now, if you're making earrings, grab a pin and two beads. Place one on the pin.
  37. 37
    Step 37
    Flip the crane over and you can see a small hole in the bottom. Put the pin in the hole.
  38. 38
    Step 38
    CAREFULLY push the pin through the body.
  39. 39
    Step 39
    Pull the pin all the way through and put the other bead on the pin. These beads will keep the crane from moving and the bottom one will keep the crane on the pin.
  40. 40
    Step 40
    Grab your pliers and bend the wire...
  41. 41
    Step 41
    ...and very carefully create a loop. Be careful! It is paper after all. If you find it a little difficult, you can fold down the tail so it's out of the way. My crane's body got a little crushed and my pliers scratched the wire. Whoops. Haha.
  42. 42
    Step 42
    Twist open a jump ring and slip it through the loop.
  43. 43
    Step 43
    Take an earring attachment and slip the jump ring through it too.
  44. 44
    Step 44
    Twist the jump ring closed and enjoy your earring! Now to make one more...
  45. 45
    Step 45
    ACTION SHOT. Hahaha.
    Wooo! Thanks for reading my tutorial. Hopefully it was easy to follow. I tried to take a lot of pictures for every step and I hope it was worth it <3
