origami crane bookmarks


This is something I’ve been thinking about doing for a while now. But there were always a few challenges behind the idea: how do you get the ribbon through the crane without damaging it and how do you keep the crane strong enough to survive the wear and tear?

For my trial run I created a crane that was rather large, threaded the ribbon through the hole at the bottom with a needle and thread and then painted the crane with modge podge.

I still like the idea, but the ribbon is too thin and the crane is too large (and I suspect still too flimsy). Another day, another trial to come…
