|Would you believe this was supposed to be a V-day artwork? :)|
Valentine's Day 2013, admittedly, was the first time I awoke on that holiday not as a single lady. Since I was not exactly experienced when it came to giving presents to a significant other, I just decided to play by my strengths and go creative. What I decided on? Senbazuru. One thousand paper cranes to you and me.
|Know your enemy. Prepare ammo.|
- Post-it would cost more than double the price of using non-cut paper
- The available post-it colors are in neon shades (I saw pink, yellow, green, orange, and blue variants). I wanted to be in control of the colors I'm using, and honestly, I am not too fond of neon colors -- and neither is my significant other.
Trivia: I based the color scheme on the actual colors of the red-crowned crane, and it was only later that I noticed they were t'nalak colors (sans the blue). I love those textiles, really.
|Multiply each by 25|
|Skewering them together, 40 cranes per string|
Did I wish for anything after completing the project? Yes, I did. But no way am I divulging my wish here. ;)
