If you have a rectangular piece of paper, fold your paper diagonally and cut the extra bit of the end. If you already have a square piece of paper then skip this step.
Next fold your piece of paper diagonally
Carefully fold both sides into the middle
It should look like a Dimond
Now fold both flaps to the centre of the dimond. Flip and repeat on the other side
It should look like this
Now fold the sides into the middle
Repeat the last step on the other side
Making sure the sides are still folded into the middle like the previous steps, fold the flap from one side to another, flip and repeat on the other side
It should look like this with a crease down the middle
Now you have your paper crane! (It doesn't matter which end it the head and which is the tail).
