How to make 1000 paper cranes for your wedding: part 2

Step 9: Now take the upper layer of both sides of the long diamond and fold them into the centre. Flip your origami over and do the same on the other side.

Step 10: Take the flap on the right and fold it over to the left, like you’re turning a page in a book. Flip your origami over and do the same on the other side.

Step 11: Lift the bottom flap and bring it up to the top before creasing it down. It should now be as tall or a little taller than the layer below it. Flip your origami over and do the same on the other side.

Step 12: Now we’re going to do something similar to step 10: take the flap on the right and fold it over to the left, like you’re turning a page in a book. Flip your origami over and do the same on the other side.

Step 13: Reach inside the origami and pull the left and right pieces outwards. Crease them so they stay in place. One of these will be the head, the other the tail.

Step 14: Choose whichever you want to be the head (I usually choose the wonkiest point, tbh) and slightly flatten out the tip, now pull this downwards and fold it back on itself, essentially turning this section inside out. Crease the sides so it will stay in place.

Step 15: Now fold the other two flaps down – these are now your wings! Congratulations, you have one paper crane!

Step 16: Repeat steps 1 to 15, 999 more times… or however many you’d like!
