A crane obsession

Cranes in the wild

Cranes in the wild

I’ll admit it, I’m a little obsessive when it comes to making paper cranes.

It started off as an innocent hobby, a trip to Hiroshima back in 2004 brought on an urge to learn how to make this style of paper crane. It somehow became an all consuming habit that has overtaken me at work, and every time I find my mind wandering you can be certain to find me folding away absentmindedly with a piece of paper.

More, more!!

More, more!!

The problem is… what do I do with my cranes?! I’ve tried disposing of them in giant recycling bins, gifting them as presents (cranes are literally scattered everywhere in my office…) and finally have resorted to stuffing them all in a small box. Which they are already threatening to overtake.

People look at magazines and marvel at the photography and articles… I just wonder how many cranes I can make out of a page. I think I may have a problem.

Hi, I’m Minh and I’m addicted to making paper cranes.
