HANDMADE VALENTINES DAY GIFT
With Valentines Day coming up, we've decided to share some of our favourite origami pieces that you can make for your Valentine.
Pair of Origami Love Birds (Cranes)
Cranes hold a symbolic representation in many cultures. The Japanese refer to the crane as " The bird of Happiness"; the Chinese as "The bird from Heaven"; and many Eastern cultures worship these birds for their love, peace and harmony. Cranes are monogamous birds and make a great gift to show longevity.
The pair of cranes is designed by Tsu Do Ing.

I combined together two origami pieces to make this jewellery/gift box.
Orchids represent love, beauty and strength.
