One craft that I can do off the top of my head is make an origami crane. I tend to find that if I`m slightly bored, I suddenly have tons of mini cranes in front of me because I made them without thinking about it too much.
I`ve always liked cranes and found them easy to fold, so I thought that I would show a simple how-to. Now, ordinarily, you use origami paper of varying sizes:
Origami paper usually has one side that has color, and one white side, but you can certainly make a crane with paper that is all one color!
First, if you don`t have origami paper, at least make sure that you have a square:
Fold it into a triangle:
Unfold, and fold into a triangle the other way:
Fold the triangle in half:
Bubble one side:
Then the other:
Fold into an ice cream cone:
Bubble the long way:
Now the other side:
However, occasionally, to make this into a recycle craft, I like to use candy wrappers. ^^ They look neat when they`re done, and it can easily be made into a decoration so that you`re not simply tossing the candy wrappers in the trash.
