On this site, I’ve considered and posted how to fold “連鶴/Renzuru”.
Renzuru means connected-cranes which are made of only one paper without glue and tape.
Renzuru models was in the book which is “秘伝千羽鶴折形/Hiden-Senbazuru-Orikata”.
The book was published in 1797.
There are 49 kinds of Renzuru in the book.
On this page, there are five steps for beginner in Renzuru.
I will introduce how to fold a basic crane, easy models, etc.
Fold a basic paper crane
In the first step, fold a basic paper crane!
On the other page, there is how to fold a basic paper crane.
I will paste the link down below.
Fold a crane after making creases
When folding Renzuru, make it in the below three steps.
Cut a paper
Fold each crane
By making creases before cutting a paper,
It will get easier to make Renzuru neatly and connecting parts will get harder to tear.
In this step, fold a crane after making creases.
Then make Renzuru – Imoseyama or Yakanbe!
Imoseyama and Yakanbe are the easiest models of 49 kinds of Renzuru.
Then make Temusubi which is an original model of this site.
A connecting part is shorter than Imoseyama and Yakanbe.
However, it is easy to make this model!
In the last step, fold Ehiroi which is one of 49 kinds of Renzuru.
This model is connected to each other with beaks.
Therefore, it is harder than Temusubi!
