nice! i'm 160 cranes into mune, 4 strings of 40 i'm glad i finally found someone who strung them like i do! i keep the wings up but like everyone else does it with wings open. are you going to hang the strings separately or like in one big cluster? cause i'm torn and advice would be good thanks!!
thank you, meredithelise! i've done 10 strings of 100 and 40 strings of 25 so far. i havent done 20 strings of 50 though...that might be somewhat interesting...i think? honestly, all of my senbazuru are not with me anymore, so i am not sure how they are being hung now. so far, i've done 3 senbazuru; one for a good friend - 10 strings of 100; one for my sister - 40 strings of 25, and she left hers at a shrine in Kyoto, Japan; and the last one for myself. i actually hung it at the Children's Peace Memorial in Hiroshima in April (2010), and that one was 10 strings of 100.
i wish you good luck with your senbazuru! you are almost half way there!! btw, i'm curious, what colors do you use on yours?
lol i did the same thing took me two weeks >_< but i hung hers on a giant paper umbrella though i should post a pic need to go to my frineds house and take one lol props to you since i know how yours hands feel after that last crane lol
