Origami is the ancient Japanese art of folding paper. Taken quite literally from the word ori meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper”, this practice of paper folding can produce very interesting and beautiful shapes. One of the most popular and recognizable shapes is the paper crane.
Lately, it seems that the paper crane is making a huge comeback as a motif for weddings and events. Cranes are elegant and regal. Using the paper crane in series or as an installation is an effective way to bring drama to any environment.
Paper crane “walls” can be created by connecting the cranes vertically and then hanging in a series. Chandeliers, wall hangings and other free-form installations can be created by assembling the cranes and hanging in different poses and formations.
Paper cranes can be created in a variety of sizes and by using many different colors of paper. We love any decoration that can be given away to guests, or that is easily recyclable. Using Origami is a very green way to decorate!
