Paper Cranes

I'm taking a bit of a break from France today to tell you about a very cool project that my friend, Edith just finished...folding paper cranes for Japan. As part of a student based fund-raiser for Japanese architects who will be re-building the areas in Japan destroyed by the recent earthquake and resulting tsunami, Edith hosted a crane-making party. She invited all her friends both in Boulder and also those of us living far away to make cranes. Her guests ranged in age from 2 1/2  to 95 1/2 years old, and they made over 200 paper cranes! That's pretty impressive, don't you think? If you're interested in this project, click here to go to the Students Rebuild website. And if you're like me and have no idea how to fold a paper crane, click here for an excellent instructional video.

I have to admit...I haven't quite mastered this paper-folding gig. I'll let you know as I progress!
