1000 Cranes Inspiration: Theme Thursday

Good morning. Today’s Theme Thursday is inspired by the work of an Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team member, 3DCranes, who makes some wicked fab origami creations. When I first came upon 3DCrane’s origami crane bouquets, it was love at first sight.

“According to Japanese lore, folding 1,000 Origami Cranes is truly a labor of love. Tradition holds that the bride who finishes this task, called ‘sembazuru’, before her wedding day will be richly rewarded with a good and happy marriage. Paying homage to the magestic crane, which mates for life and is said to live one thousand years, the bride ensures her own good fortune.”
-Linda Mihara, in B FOR SAVVY BRIDES magazine, 1998

If you are a bride up to the challenge of folding 1000 cranes or letting someone else’s hands do the folding, I present to you a red, white, and gold 1000 cranes inspiration board. Have a fabulous day everyone!
