Origami Paper Folding Techniques

Once upon a time, someone told me that if you can make one thousand origami paper folding crane within a year, your wish will come true.

“One thousand?” I asked. That’s an expensive price to pay just to have your wish granted, isn’t it?

Well, not really. If you look at the task from a different point of view, that’s equal to less than three origami paper cranes per day. If you can fold three every day, you’ll finish one thousand before the year is over. And you will be an expert in origami paper folding, you know, the 10000 hours rule and stuffs.

The One Thousand Origami Paper Cranes Journey

The real question is, will your wish really come true? I tried to find out the answer and live up to the challenge back when I had all the time in the world. I failed. I stopped after a few months at the count of four hundred something. The reason: there was no more paper to fold. (And everybody was complaining about the piles of cranes that invaded their space 🙂 )
