Perfect for a group project.

I recommend this product- with the stipulation that you don't mind the squares not being perfect squares.

This is a pretty good little product. It comes all in Japanese, but it's pretty simple to figure out even if you don't know the language. The kit comes with 1020 sheets of paper, string, and beads. All you need to do is fold the paper and provide the needle to sew them together.

My only gripe (and for me, it's a big one) is that some of the sheets in my kit weren't perfect squares. They weren't majorly off, to be fair, but every little bit counts when you're a perfectionist about the stuff.

This was JUST what I was looking for. I wanted the perfect kit to make 1000 paper cranes and this was just what I wanted. The colours are perfect for a bright display. Everything you need is included including paper, string and small beads to make sure the cranes stay on the string. I have not completed my cranes yet but they will shortly be on display at the Peace Prayer Memorial Park in Okinawa as a display of my hope for peace in the future. Thanks so much for the product's timely service and great product over all.

One thousand crane kit. Pure Japanese, down to the instructions. If you can't figure out the diagram there are many places on the web to show you the pattern for the crane. This is the most complete, best priced on Amazon and no, I (heh) did not buy the company.

Haven't finished my thousandth yet either. Don't fear buying this one. It was what it said it would be.

I bought this kit to fold 1,000 cranes for a friend's wedding. Right now I am 450 cranes into this project and everything is going well. As another reviewer stated, not all of the sheets are perfect squares, but they still suit their purpose. There are 51 sheets of each color of paper, 20 shades. For the final product, that leaves you with two cranes of each color for each of the 25 stands of cranes, with one of each color left over.

One thing that I didn't expect was that the dye from the paper gets left on my finger, my bone folder, and the box that I'm folding on. Not a big deal, but something buyers should be aware of.

It is an excellent kit. The paper is a rainbow of beautiful colors. I have made 1000 and used them to decorate wedding tables. Guests were thrilled, loved the intended message of the cranes and took several home with them.

I bought this kit about 4 years ago from a local shop.

Yep - I folded 1000 cranes from the kit, and strung them together. The end result was a lovely rainbow of cranes. The paper is a little small for the beginning folder, but 1000 cranes takes up more space than you think, so the smaller the better. It doesn't take THAT long to become a good folder with the paper size in this kit. The paper is decent quality and easy to fold.

It took a while to fold all 1000 cranes of course, but for me it was a sort of daily meditation. I set a goal to fold a minimum number of cranes every day. In the end, it took about 4 months to complete. I picked up some small charms from a local beading shop to hang on the end of each string.

As previously mentioned, the instructions are in Japanese, but between the diagrams and the pictures on the package, it was no problem.

I don't have the final product anymore - as a spiritual exercise in "letting go", I burned it on a fire about a month after finishing it. I kept the charms, and if I do this again, I will re-use them.

One idea for a 1000-cranes project is to get a list of names together, write each name on the white side of the origami paper, and fold into cranes. After 9/11, when troops were sent to Afghanistan and Iraq, I got together with some friends and we did this as a tribute to those lost in the war, with the names of the first 1000 American casualties. This could be done as a tribute/memorial to just about anything.

I read in another review that the square wasn't quite perfect and I was little concerned that trimming them would take lots of time (I'm really picky regarding my origamis), but as I wanted 20 colors in rainbow ones, I ended up getting this product anyways. For my surprise, they were total 100% perfect squares. Perfect perfect! They come in 20 colors, 50 papers per color. Some came with 55, others 51, but that did not annoy me at all, since they were extras, and I was expecting to get only 50 of each.
Nice colors, good quality paper. Just can't say if thread was enough, because I wasn't doing the 1000 cranes, but other than that, really loved the product so much that I just put another order for 2 more kits.

Love the vibrant colors; the kit came in a 20 spectrum rainbow of different colors. Note the smaller paper size of 3" X 3" rather than the more typical 5" X 5" (but makes a cute smaller bird that takes up less space). Makes cute cranes! Perfect for a group project.

***** UPDATE *****

It took us about 7 months for two people to fold the kit of 1,000 paper cranes. I've uploaded pictures of our project so you can get more of an idea of what the kit looks like, and how our project turned out. As far as getting 1000 pieces of origami paper, I do not know of a cheaper/better deal. Undertaking folding a 1000 cranes is a more time consuming project than you might first realize. We each could fold about 20 birds a week, folding a few minutes per day, or an hour total. Between the two of us we could fold about 40 birds per week. We could have maybe done it faster with a larger time commitment, but keep in mind your fingers (not to mention hands, arm, neck, and back) get tired after a while! I think it could make a great project for a larger group (a school or classroom?). I am still as satisfied with the kit 7 months later than I was at the time when we purchased it!
