This traditional origami crane II also starts from bird base. The special feature of this model is an unique shape of two wings.
Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami crane.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the
origami crane. It is a little easier if the front and the back side of the paper are
slightly different whether it be in texture or color.
Make sure the paper
that you use is a square(all sides are equal and all the angles
equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is 20cm x 20cm square one. If you are become familiar with this model. Then you can try smaller size paper.
This is the front side of paper.
If would be nice to have a white color one. But it is extremely difficult to see the paper under white background.
This is the back side of paper.
Keep in your mind that the front side is the shinier one.
