Crane Ornaments

This holiday season we started offering gift wrapping at ode. We wanted to do something a little special, so we've been tying a paper crane ornament onto each gift we wrap. Here's how to make these ornaments yourself:

You'll need origami paper, scotch tape and ribbon.

Crane Ornaments

Fold a piece of origami paper in half diagonally, then cut a small slit (about 1/ 4 of an inch) in the middle.

Crane Ornaments

Cut a piece of ribbon about 8 inches long, cutting the ends diagonally.

Crane Ornaments

Fold the ribbon in half and thread both ends through the slit in the center of the paper.

Crane Ornaments

Tape the ends flat to the other side of the paper.

Once you've taped the ribbon, just follow these instructions:
