Origami Flower Kusudama
The Kusudama flower is very special, in translation its name sounds like “medical ball”. The secret of its design is in the presence of a large number of pockets and flaps, in which you can put healing dried flowers and herbs. But, of course, such a flower is much more often used as a decorative element, because it is incredibly beautiful. It looks elegant and luxurious! And our step-by-step master class will help you to make such a charming composition. Thoroughly follow the steps described below, and you will get the desired result!
Prepare 5 sheets of paper of 15 x 15 cm each. You can choose a single color or different shades but of the same color scheme for a harmonious composition.
With each of the corners, you need to make a squash fold – lift and unfold the right corner flap first.
The sides of both squash folds need to be glued together. You can use glue or double-sided tape for this purpose. If you use glue, be sure to give it enough time to dry.
Follow all the steps again to make four more kusudama petals from the remaining four pieces of paper.
Once the ball is dry, you can hang it on a string. If you use double-sided tape, the assembly process will be faster. In the finished kusudama flower, you can put flowers, and herbs and enjoy the unusual aromas and excellent decorative properties of this charming ball.
