1,000 Cranes for Good Luck

I was browsing through weddingbee, one of my favorite daily reads, and stumbled upon this beautiful work of art by Stacie Tamaki. Named "Spring Cranes," this beauty is made out of 1,000 origami paper cranes hanging off a bamboo parasol frame (that number of cranes symbolizes good luck for the bride and groom).

I loved origami and especially folding paper cranes when I was younger, and this brought back such memories. Spring Cranes also reminds me of Preston Bailey's elaborate chandeliers covered by flowers. I often drool over his over-the-top deigns for weddings and parties.

All this gives me an idea for a craft project for the wedding...I may attempt something like Spring Cranes. Best of all, it can also function as a show piece in my future home!
