Crane Lights.

My craft buddy came up with the idea of crane lights and folded all the cranes, then we made this together.

I love, love, love it! It’s a gift for my birthday :)

 

Cut medium-weight clear plastic sheets to size, and pre-fold into paper-crane.

Can do pre-folding, but basically fold the plastic into a papercrane, then unfold.

Sandwich the two pieces together, cellophane inside the clear plastic, and fold into crane.

Tested them by sticking the light into cranes. Doesn't heat up much - good. Was worried that the cellophane contacting the light would met. But all worked out well!

Planed out which colours go together, and in what order.

Experiment. There were 100 cranes; we put a group of 40 in cool (blue-yellow-green) and warm (red-purple-pink) colour schemes, and a string of 20 multi-coloured.
