Jar of 500 cranes

I find it somewhat therapeutic to fold origami cranes. It also gives you something to do when you have nothing else to do, or you’re stuck and deliberating over a problem like I am. If you cut your own paper like me however, it will take you a lot longer. I’d say on and off this project took almost six months. I’m a busy uni student after all! Or, well, I should be.

This jar, I believe, is a 1.75 litre one? Well, I heard you need a gallon jar to fit a 1000 cranes in. And this jar here was the largest I could find, fitting only 500. Shame really, but the real question is how to present the next 500? In an identical looking jar, or as a separate project?

Well, I’m going back to Cambridge this weekend and my exams are in June, so it’s best I don’t focus too much on this, eh?

  1. Pretty as always! I’ve always wondered the equivalent of innocent trees you have cut down from all your origami paper use? 😉
