Among Japan's countless crafts, origami (making shapes by folding paper) stands out: not only because it involves paper, which you could certainly argue is the the most beloved material in Japan, and not only because it's so easy that even a child can learn to do it. The main reason is probably that it allows our imagination to soar: how many different things can a sheet of paper transform into? The Flags of the World Crane Origami Set gives just one answer: at least 24 - as many as the flag-colored cranes you can create using it!
The shape of the origami in the Flags of the World Crane Origami Set is the same and is the most easily recognizable origami design: the "tsuru" or crane, a symbol of good fortune and longevity. The trick is in the print on the paper: each pack contains two each of 24 different nation's flags (see the complete list below), so you can create 48 cranes at all - twice, since this is a double pack! A great way to spend a couple of hours and to teach yourself - or your children - the basics of origami and world geography!
