Wow, seven weeks? That takes a lot of dedication. How many did you fold per day?

Some days I could make over 50 when I had nothing else to do and could sit and watch stuff all day whilst folding. Other days I'd be so busy that I wouldn't get more than ten done. It's varied really. ^_^

Amazing! Two of my friends got married earlier this year and they had one thousand paper cranes at their wedding. They are so lovely.

That sounds like a good idea. Where did they put the cranes?

They were everywhere! :D Mostly they were on the dining tables as decorations, both on the table cloths and hanging by thread from glass vases filled with yet more cranes. But they also had them along the bar and on any other surfaces at the reception that had the space.
