Heh, I put cranes there and then changed my mind. I knew that whatever direction I went it would be the opposite.
I've always wanted to try my hand at origami but I'm thinking this would be the closest I'll get.
They do actually look more like swans...
I have never been a very good paper folder (or cutter for that matter)- something I chalk up to being left handed
. I really want to learn the cranes, though, because I wanted to make my own mobile with different pretty papers. It will take a while before my cranes look as nice as Mina Nina's.
