Have you met Cristian Marianciuc? He's making 365 paper cranes, and is nearing the end of his task. Each crane is unique, and serves as a diary or reflection on the day's events. They range from the simple, like this Heritage Crane...
...to the complex, such as this multi-media Let There Be Peace Crane.
Here are a few more of my favorites.
I love the idea of taking a common object or craft and transforming it into something unexpected. Artwork like this inspires creativity.
If you, like me, never memorized how to fold a paper crane, you can find directions here, at UTFold. There's a pdf page of instructions below the video.
And to see all of Christian's crane creations (there are many dozens more), go to his Instagram page or his Facebook site.
