Fold paper in half and cut a slit in one side to make two square areas. Cut out edges on the right to leave a square behind as shown. For this 3 x 5.5 inch paper I cut a slit 1.5 inches long and 1.5 inches down from the top. I cut out rectangles on the right that measured 1.5 x .75.
Fold the single crane as with the paper oriented as shown.
Turn the paper over and fold the two cranes as shown.
Fold the card down the middle fold and place the center crane's wing over the top crane to lock it in place.
Starting paper sizes: 3 x 5.5 (left), 3.5 x 6 (middle), 4 x 7 (right)
