Playing with paper origami cranes 折鶴の遊び

I really like origami and especially the cranes. They are relatively easy to fold, they look cute – and they bring luck. One question though, what do you do with the origami you folded? Throw it away? My boyfriend’s grandma make tenths of them every day and tuck them into jars, envelopes, boxes. If you look for something completely different in their house you’re likely to find a colorful crane – a nice surprise =) Well, the other day I went to my niece to do some origami. I had bought some small gem stones and ribbons as well so we could pimp them a bit. I made a bunch and turned them into these crazy little decorations. I don’t know if I like it or if it’s just too much, but at the moment I think they’re kind of cute.
折り紙、特に折鶴がとても好き。折るのは結構簡単だし、可愛いし。しかも、幸運を訪れる。ただ、出来た折り紙をどうやって使う?ただ捨てる?彼氏のおばあさんは鶴を毎日何個でも作って、箱やジャー、封筒、何でもに押し込む。全く違うものを彼氏の実家で探したら、期待しなかった折鶴が現れる可能性が高い。この間姪と折り紙を作りながら遊びに行った。もっと可愛くするため小さい装飾ようの石やリボンを買って行った。いっぱい作ってこの面白い飾りになった。好きかどうかまだ分からないが、とりあえずちょっと可愛いとおもう。
My cousin who just moved into a new apartment and loves everything Japanese, flowery, pink and crazy was the perfect person to donate these cranes to. And, putting them in a nice Japanese box at least she gets something that she can use as well =)
日本っぽいや花柄、ピンク、クレイジーなものが大好きな新しいアパートに移動したばかり従姉妹ちゃんにこの鶴をあげるのは完璧だ思った。念のため可愛い日本っぽい箱に入れて渡した。そうすると使うものをせめて一個もらう:)
