So we have about 200 patterned paper cranes. Sorta like the above.
I have no clue what to do with them.
String them together and hang them somewhere?
Spread them around on the tables?
Include them in the centerpieces?
But then how are people going to write on them over the pattern?
Attach some bit of paper?
There will be enough for at least one per person, probably quite a few more.
Any ideas or opinions on what you think would be fun?

I think a wishing tree with 200 cranes would be AMAZING.. or strung in like a curtain of cranes….wowza

I think that you could hang a tag from the bottom of them with needle and thread for the wishing tree. You could then hang them from a tree, that would be the cutest wishing tree.

@tksjewelry: Hoping we can get a big enough tree. This was the original idea, but I’m not sure if I’m crafty enough to attach them and make them look nice.

We’ve made 1000 cranes (as the Japanese tradition goes) and we’re stringing them up from the trees all around the reception venue.
sort of like this:
we’re also putting up a sign explaining the significance of the 1000 cranes for our guests to read

@Anna_Purton: 🙂 Yes, I’m actually getting them from a friend who made the 1000 cranes for her wedding. She’s Japanese. She made quite a few extra and graciously gave them to me.
I had thought of stringing them somewhere, but I don’t know if it will go with our color scheme as they’re more shabby chic, rustic colors not crisp colors like I’m doing. I might be able to find a place for them though if the wishing tree doesn’t work out.
