Origami Stars by Zhoira Origami Stars by Zhoira
Entry for the :iconartisancraft: origami contest!

Stars are probably one of the simplest things to make out of paper, but I think they are so pretty! My friend told me that if you make 10000 (I think) of these, you can make a wish come true! :heart: Made using 1cm wide strips of coloured printing paper.

About the club...Now I havn't been in it for a long time, but I think it's great that so many artisan craft artists are brought together by the club, being able to appreciate more of other artists' work and having your work being appreciated by more people! It's also an good place to be getting inspirations and learning new ways of crafting :)

Actually 1000 tiny cranes brings you good luck, not make a wish come true. It's a Buddhist wives tale

"My friend told me that if you make 10000 (I think) of these, you can make a wish come true!"

Actually your friend got it wrong.. it's "1000 (one thousand) cranes" not stars. Sorry! ):

"An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. The crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures (others include the dragon and the tortoise), and is said to live for a thousand years. In Asia, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true."
