How To Make An Origami Crane- Pt One Inside Reverse Fold

I decided to have a go working on an origami crane which I think is a fun one.  Also, apparently if you make 1000 cranes your wish will be granted, which is nice.

The important and tricky thing about making cranes is that it features several ‘inside reverse’ fold which is easy once you’ve mastered it (but then again what isn’t!)  So below is my garbled attempt at explaining the ‘inside reverse’.

Fold the paper in half

On the folded edge fold the corner of the paper

Completely unfold the paper, your paper will be creased now. Then pinch the paper where the three creases meet.

Keep pinching with you right hand, and use a finger on your left hand to push the left corner in, using the creases you just made as a guide. I couldn’t show both my hands and take the picture, sorry!

Once you’ve started the process it should keep going on its own.

Pretty much the finish product.

When you’re done it will look like this, with the folded section neatly hidden away.

I was going to have the Origami Crane all in one post but it would have been far to long with all of the above as well, so tune in on Friday (27th Sept) for part two, with the actual crane making!
