And when I heard you can actually donate your efforts toward cancer research, I knew this was a done deal. Instead of putting our time, money and effort into a DIY favor that no one will take home, we wanted to do something meaningful and hopefully make an impact. What better way than making a donation to a charity?
So we started our paper cranes two days ago, buying 500 pieces of printer paper at Staples for $2 (with rebate). We propped our laptop on the table and followed this Youtube clip:
and after an hour of struggling with one paper crane, and getting mighty frustrated as my fiance made his perfect-looking cranes, I was ready to give up. But if folding 1000 paper cranes grants you prosperity and happiness as legend says, it can't be an easy task. So I tried, again and again, and my little birds were begining to look presentable. Now, I'm definitely hooked. Actually, I'm quite obsessed with these little fellas. They become easier and a lot more fun once you get the hang of them. But yes, they are time consuming! If we are to make our goal of 1000 paper cranes, we'll need to fold at least 6 cranes a day. We have 20 down...just 980 to go! Looks like we could some of that luck early!
