Look at this 1000 recycled-paper crane project!

Okay! Don't forget to bring in your property flyers now... 
even if it is just one flyer.
If we all work together, we will have plenty of paper 
for our cranes in no time!
This is a dress made out of 1000 recycled-paper cranes. 
It is on display at the London Science Museum right now!
It's fun to make things from recycled materials!
