This gorgeous paper swan takes about 10 hours to make, at first I though that might be too much time to spend on a papercraft but the results look great!

Creating a swan out of hundreds of smaller origami pieces is currently popular among the younger generation in Asia. Your loved one will appreciate this gift because you put in a tremendous amount of effort, dedication and patience. This is definitely a sign of love’s labor. Preparation: First you need to fold 500 individual triangular pieces, which are the backbones of creating the swan.
