NEW for 2016 ........Shipping Policy.

I am starting a dull time nanny job January 2016 and will now be shipping only on Saturdays.

The mysterious shipping issue story

6.20.2015 .......Etsy has removed the ease of seeing shipping costs. I just found out and it has been like this for quite awhile. One bird shipped in the USA is 4.00 ....any additional birds are typically .50 cents added on to the first bird. Etsy has re-engineered the template hiding what was readily available in the past. Now in order to know the total combined cost of multiple birds you have to add them to your shopping cart. Example 5 birds would be $ 6.00 total for shipping . My apologies for their inconvenient methodology
This link is to a set of 225 Christmas and Hanukkah peace cranes shown on Flickr. If you want to order holiday cranes in the summer contact me and I will reserve a listing in your name.

Most of the peace cranes for sale in this shop are priced for 1 bird, even if there are 2 or 3 birds in a photo. Some times there are sets for sale and how many birds offered in the set are described and listed, for instance 5 birds or 15 birds etc Typically if a listing for a peace crane is $ 8.00 and there are 2-3 birds in the photo the peace crane listing is 99.9 % most likely for 1 bird

Peace cranes are elegant, whimsical, or pretty wedding favors. The style depends on the paper you choose. They can be based on a theme, a hobby, a passion that the two of you have. Peace Cranes can be symbolic of something you want to convey. Peace cranes may commemorate how or where the two of you met, or have something to do with your backgrounds.
The $1.25 Luxurious and Traditional Origami Peace Crane
Traditional classic origami peace cranes are not glazed, and the price reflects the simplicity of traditional classic peace cranes made without glitter, glaze and jeweled wire hanger. These cranes are perfect to send with a greeting card, thank you or love note by "Old School" snail mail. I use a variety of sturdy paper sourced from all over the world. This is a listing with more information

According to an ancient Japanese legend anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by the crane, the most venerable of all holy beasts. The folded cranes are used to wish newlyweds and newborns good luck. You will often see the cranes hanging in homes to assure the dwellers good fortune and in most recent years the cranes have been adopted as a symbol of peace.

"I shall write peace upon your wings, your heart and you shall fly around the world so that children will no longer have to die this way."

— Sadako Sasaski, 12
Victim of the atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima

Sadako began folding 1000 peace cranes in the early 1950's after being exposed to the toxins. The story of Sadako, and the memorial children raised money for in her honor is now visited by millions of people a year who leave 1000 cranes at the memorial.

Multiple orders of one design are available.
Please email me if you order enough cranes to receive a discount before you purchase. I will post a separate reserve listing in your name.

There are over 100 holiday themed papers not listed on Etsy, Christmas, Hanukkah, Easter, Valentine, Kwanza etc. Please contact me and I will send you images of these papers and reserve post on Etsy in your name, your choices.

If you are contemplating ordering for a wedding or event in the future please note that some of the paper is in limited quantities. I can source some of the paper in the future, but many of these papers are limited to what I have in stock. I suggest ordering a crane as a sample to allow you to make a decision after seeing the crane in real life ! Thanks.

Tie this onto your wrapped gift to add affordable luxury. Place a few of these permanently glazed ornaments in a box and you have a luxurious gift for a modest price! Fans of these keepsake peace cranes treasure them.

Contact me if you qualify for a discount or with any questions. Buy 5-9 cranes and let me know what your extra crane choice is by email rather than buying it first. Thanks.
