Tonight, I have tried (and failed) to create a passable paper crane.
I followed <a title=”paper crane origami gemma critchley one a day craft blog blogger” href=”http://www.pacificfriend.ca/html/how_to_fold_a_paper_crane.html” target=”_blank”>these instructions</a> and yet still managed to get it quite wrong towards the end. I’m normally not too bad at craft stuff but this completely stumped me.
It was my first proper attempt at any kind of origami and the first time I had introduced the art of paper folding into Craft Night. This was my (really quite terrible) attempt:

I’m going to keep trying, get really good at it and get some proper craft paper to make loads of pretty ones to decorate the flat with at Christmas.
After that attempt though, I thought I’d better call it a night so instead had a disco half hour dancing around the living room with the lights off by myself.
Rock and/or roll.
