I made these little origami earrings today! I love origami, especially the cranes, so a little lightbulb in my head flashed "AHA! EARRINGS!"

Here they are

I hope you like them! please comment  Smiley

They're nice and snazzier than other paper crane earrings I've seen. I have trouble making cranes that small. Any tips?

It takes a LOT of practice to make them cranes, especially the smaller ones. With the small ones, make sure to go slow and fold carefully.  The cranes in the picture aren't actually that small (to me.. Cheesy). I've made ones that are about a little larger than a pea. now THAT took a lot of practice  Shocked

 Shocked Ohmygoodness, a little larger than a pea?!? Wow, that is incredible! I don't think I'll be able to make cranes that small for a long, long time.

I agree, slightly larger than a pea is incredible. Any chance you'd post a pic of one of those? I've never seen one so tiny. I wish I had your crazy origami skills!
