Origami Crane Design Video Tutorial

The origami crane is one of the most popular origami designs. The crane, which stands for luck, hope and joy, has actually become a highly-recognized sign in the West of the old paper-folding custom.

This design is easy enough even for a beginner to master. Have fun and please be sure to share your designs with us!


  1. I just wanted to let you know that this is one of the most informative origami videos I.ve seen. One YOU talked and I could understand you! I DO hope to see more. Just to others that might be beginners (such as me) I have found that some of my mistakes turn out to (my surprise) be beautiful. So don’t give up.
    P.S. I still had to pause the video LOL

  2. Whoever this gentle sounding person is leading the crane tutorial would, if he is not already, make a fantastic teacher. His directions are clear without disrupting background music and his hands never get in the way of the folds he is showing. And his gift: Being patient without being patronizing; becoming where the student is, not where you expect her/him to be. Thank you. My crane? He’s Origami Craze purple.
