The Paper Cranes Project reportage

Posted in One hope project by littletiara on May 22, 2009

I was away from the blogsphere for quite a while no? Life has been pretty stressful, or even if it doesn’t, still, I was stressed, lol. And as I’ve promised you, in this post I’ll report how the paper cranes project is going on.

I’m so happy with the result, a lot of people send their paper cranes picture to me during these two weeks. They even ask their friends and collagues to fold one :D. And it’s so wonderful how I can get more friends from this project, those who kindly fold a paper cranes even without knowing who I am first, thank you so much dears!

Me and Nanette works online separately, she’s working more on Buzznet and me, well.. blog and facebook :D and sorry that I’m not really sure how much is it in total, but in my side, I’ve collected about 40 paper cranes pictures, thank you so much! Isn’t it wonderful?

It’s really great to know how someone learn to make a paper cranes because of this project, hehe…

I should really make a thank you list, but pardon me for being too lazy to do that hyperlink things :( I’ll do it later, maybe when we reached 100? Hehe…

wow, 1000 is a long way!


My paper cranes can fly!

Life is hectic! But also very wonderful :D and I am glad that I can really enjoy this every little bits of it :)

The ‘ONE HOPE: 1000 Paper cranes’ project is still going on and strong :) I hope more people will participate. I myself, actually, before this project had even started have already 200++ paper cranes, I do it when I need time to be alone, just sit down and thinking, my hands can’t stop doing something so I’ll just grab my origami paper and make some paper cranes, it’s a kind of therapy for me.

By the way, I took some pictures of my paper crane yesterday. I even made a banner!

I used no string, really! I used stick, and edited it in photoshop, you know, it’s pretty tiring to hold up a stick while trying to take a picture of the object stick on it, lol. In the end my brother helped me holding the stick.

A rather simple shot, but I love the color! My marble floor looks even more beautiful in this photo, and the shadow part is my favorite :D

I didn’t use stick, I hold this paper crane up, lol. And it’s way more tiring, haha… but I love the color of the sky above :D

Once again, stick and photoshopped, and cropped, well…

Which one of these pictures is your favorite? I need to pick one and send it to Nanette, but I just can’t choose! None is good enough! *hufft…

The banner:

onehopeproject I did only cropped and gave a little touch up, the shot was taken by Nanette herself, sure she’s way more skilled than me, haha…

Crane is a majestic bird which mates for life and is extremely loyal to its partner. The bird is strong, graceful and beautiful. Because of the great importance of the crane, the Japanese people feel that a person who folds 1,000 cranes will be granted his or her greatest wish.

I believe that to fold a thousand cranes can cure an illness or help to live a longer life, or better, to make peace.

I can’t make it up to 1000. but i just need one hope:
One hope that leads to world peace.
One hope that leads to no more starvation.
One hope that leads to no more abducted children.
One hope that leads to no more exploitation of nature.
One hope that leads to the goodness of all humankind.

would u help me?
please help me to make another 999 other of this origami and send me your link of the photo.
all those photos of yours will be printed and i will send it to WWF indonesia to help them to save the endangered wild animals and save the rain forests. (credits to you of course)
this may be not much and only a little help and a little hope, but i believe in one thing: IF YOU MAKE IT WITH ALL YOUR GREATEST HEART,OUR HOPE WILL COME TRUE.

and if you have no idea of how to make a paper crane, you can find it here:


My friend, Nanette has this wonderful project, and I am hoping that you all can help us, whether fold the paper crane, take a pic of it and send it to us (by commenting here, email me or straight to nanette’s email) or spread the word by posting something about it on your blog, or both! :D

You can always use an unused paper in your house, recycled papers or just an old newspaper you will never read anymore, it’s really up to you :)

I’ll be checking every now and then and inform you how this project is going on, so far we have only three pictures, it will be great if each one of you can add one picture and get more people involved :D

email nanette:

Thank you so very much!
