This is just a showing off post I guess Grin Roll Eyes  Cheesy.  I tried to get a closer pic of the cranes but I didnt know how to with my cam.  I use receipts for the two white ones and i dont remember what i used for the green one.  They're on a regular old US penny

Edited to add pic to the post Smiley

Wow.  That is too cool!  Talk about tiny...did you have to use tweezers or something to fold them?  I'd think fingers would be too big and awkward to do anything that intricate.

Thanks!!  I used my fingers for everything and then my nails (they're kinda long) and a pair of to finish up folding the head.  I tried using tweezers for the whole process but I just ripped the paper so I went back to using my fingers.

Eegatz! Those are really tiny! I've done small cranes before, but I'm not sure if they were as small as yours! Great job! Have you tried making other tiny origami creations aside from the cranes?

You DESERVE to show off!  I've done some origami that was tiny enough to get comments, but nothing like your cranes -- I'm impressed  Smiley

Hey ming, nope so far I've just stuck to cranes.  I've been looking at some origami sites tho but I cant fold that much from memory, just cranes and baskets (my great aunt taught me when I was about 4 or so).

thanks pimpernelsmith! :blush: Cheesy
