…But a great excuse to watch a lot of movies (or hockey playoffs in my case).
1000 Paper Cranes!
The tutorial I used is here (I needed video to figure it out).
I used the left over paper from my pyramid boxes (see below) to make 3 x 3, 2.5 x 2.5, and 2 x 2 inch squares.
So according to Japanese legend, I can now make my wish and have it granted by the majestic crane.
The crane motif is used in weddings because the bird mates for life, is loyal/devoted to its partner, and shares in all responsibilities.
My wedding seems to be taking on an Eastern theme.
