I loved the cranes! I got them for my husband for our first wedding anniversary paper gift and he loved them!! He loves Christmas and having the cranes as our first year Christmas tree ornament is a great idea! I got two one with my first letter to him on our wedding day and one with his letter. I am so happy with the way they turned out and communication with Beth was great. She was able to have them to us in time for our anniversary even though my order was placed sort of last minute. I highly recommend this shop and I will be back again for more!

Paper Cranes....blessings, healing, peace and hope.
Welcome to The Crane Heart shop on Etsy! I am thrilled that you've happened upon my little shop!
When I was married in 2012, my friends inspired me to fold one thousand cranes for our wedding. They too folded their hearts out and we ended up with well over one thousand cranes which hung from every tree limb and in every window frame, sat on every table (and then went home with every guest). Our wedding was surrounded by the magic of paper cranes and still today we are blessed by their amazement. Many believe that paper cranes bring peace, love, harmony, health, luck, longevity, healing and fortune. When folded for a wedding they symbolize good luck and happiness for the marriage.
After our wedding, I had a goal of supplementing our full time income so that we could work towards our goal of buying our first home and expanding upon our new family. I was missing the meditative process of folding paper cranes and watching their little bodies puff up when I opened their wings. I had spent months enjoying this process and all of a sudden it was gone. So, I began folding again and opened this shop. It is truly a labor of love with the goal of spreading the joy of the paper crane all over the world!
While I spend my days at the day job, I spend my evenings and weekends with paper cranes. I am happier than ever putting together an order and sending it across the globe so that someone else may feel the joy of a paper crane in their heart and home!
Thanks to everyone of you who visits my shop and sees just how special these paper birds are. More and more of you now have a paper crane in your life and that puts a big smile in my heart.
Folded with love,

Welcome to the Crane Heart! This shop was created out of my love for the paper crane. The healing power of the crane is pretty spectacular and my mission is to spread the joy and magic of these beautiful symbols of hope.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
The Crane Heart accepts credit cards through Etsy- see listing for payment methods. Also accepting PayPal now!
I am more than happy to communicate regarding custom orders and will give you all the information you need to make decisions with regard to the item your having customized.
Please note that custom orders must be paid for in full before I can begin working on your order. A reserve listing may need be set up for your payment. Once payment is received, I can begin working on your order. For bulk custom orders, I am happy to work with you on payment plans. Paypal also offers budget plans.
I will do everything to provide you with an accurate time frame for custom orders- while we are communicating I will be able to determine what supplies are in hand and what I need to order for supplies- this may vary the time frame which you will be made aware of- and which we will agree upon.
I don't typically charge rush fees on orders. Rush fees may be assessed if you are requesting a bulk order of paper cranes. You will be made aware of any fee's prior to placing an order.
Sales tax must be charged to any shipments I send within Massachusetts (United States). The sales tax rate is 6.25%. Items shipped everywhere else within US and elsewhere (at this time) will not require sales tax.
For custom orders, I don't start working on it until payment is received. Chances are that if I have ordered supplies for your custom item (s) I can use them for something else; however if something had to be purchased specifically for your order and cannot be used by me: you can choose to have the supplies plus the cost of shipping OR I will refund you if I can use the supplies in my shop.
Standard orders can be cancelled within 48 hours. You will receive your refund via Etsy or Paypal when cancelling an order.
I ship USPS with tracking for most all sales. If you need something expedited (beyond the listed time frame for an item), shipping costs will be factored into the price of your purchase- this applies to custom orders too. So, if you are purchasing a pre-set rate item I will set up an additional listing for you to pay the extra shipping costs (your item will not be shipped until you have paid for the shipping).
UPS shipping is available. The cost to ship via UPS will be calculated and a custom order will be set up for you.
Shipping overestimates do occur on occasion. Shipping costs over $4 US will be refunded to you after shipment.
Shipping costs also include packaging materials which won't be reflected in the cost of your USPS postage stamp (the one you see when your package arrives). These costs include boxes, tape, labels, inside packing materials, etc.). I always use recycled boxes when possible.
If you would like insurance to protect your items during shipment, you are responsible for paying the fees for that. Priority shipping via USPS always includes $50 insurance.
You are responsible for any and all customs fees. When you pick up your package you may be responsible for paying additional fees. Please email me your phone number with your order if your country requires it to be on the shipping/customs labels.
Refunds and Exchanges
Things happen...shipping costs will not be refunded for any reason and you will be responsible for paying shipping costs on return items unless otherwise noted (see below).
If anything should happen, I will work with you to replace the order in the time you need. Ever more important is to have enough lead time so we don't get ourselves in a bind in the event that an order is damaged or lost during shipment.
If there is a big oops and I send you the wrong item I will re-send the correct item. You would not be responsible for return shipping of the incorrect item in that case. I will provide you with the necessaries to return it- if there is any question on my end as to the validity of your claim I reserve the right to ask for proof of the mistake from you.
There are no returns on completed custom orders received by you unless I have made an error with the order.
I want you to be happy and want you to have a great experience with each purchase :)
Please, please don't hesitate to contact me with a concern or problem!
