Master of origami I am not.

So I tried to do origami for my anniversary coming up since I have no money. 
 
I don't think they look to good but it is my second time trying it.  I can't stand arts and crafts but I thought I should try it anyway.  Should I spend my ime doing something else or keep trying since I have 3 weeks left?

I just gave it a bash, turned out alright considering I spent half the time looking at my peice of paper in disbelief wondering how the hell it didint look the same as the guy's in the video.

I use to make tons and tons of tiny ass cranes when I was a kid. 

It's been years since I did one of these but, muscle memory kicked in and finished it with no problem. 
I had to use a paper clip to fold that thing. Fingers are too big for folding something this small.

After making that I tried to make an even smaller one. 15 minutes later I made shitty looking one that's 3mm in size or 8x smaller then what I made previously. 
I checked to see what the world record was for smallest origami crane. It's 1mm in size. Dude used a pin needle and a microscope though.
 
@Lestater:
  
As important as any size comparison subject can be.
