I have received several peace cranes from blogging friends over the years, including several swags which adorn the kitchen table light down at Riverside. They are absolutely precious. I have to admit to never making one myself. When I worked at a small private school in Virginia, the entire school became involved in making 1000 peace cranes which were hand delivered to Japan during the 50th anniversary of Hiroshima. The kids were so thrilled to be part of such a wonderful project.

I found this tutorial on Youtube. Perhaps it's time I learned to make them and spread some peace myself. I know I always enjoy receiving them. Lord knows I have enough paper stockpiled. It looks simple enough. Ya think?

As facinating as this was to watch, I don't believe I'll be making one any time soon *smile*

Thanks for posting this. My Japanese friends tried to teach me how to do these and I failed abysmally. Maybe this video will be better -- I do love the cranes!
