Instead of using origami paper, I used a piece of cellophane packaging from a greeting card. You can use any cellophane (from flower wrapping, the packaging of stickers, stationary etc). You just want to make sure its not to thin (do not use saranwrap, it will not work). Cut the cellophane packaging into a square and follow the crane origami tutorial (different link from above, same concept). The clear plastic sparkle and glisten in the light making them looks as magical and mystical as I once thought they could be.
