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.
