Kusudama Flower Tutorial

Watch a video tutorial on how to make this paper flower ornaments. It’s a little bit involved but it’s definitely worth the effort.

Kusudama Origami is a type of Japanese paper folding. It involves folding several sheets of paper into identical modules. These modules are then assembled together to form a spherical structure. A completed kusudama ball usually consists of 60 paper modules. It was traditionally scented with incense or potpourri and used in Ancient Japan for medicinal purposes. Nowadays, it is simply used for decoration and makes a wonderful gift.

I suggest you watch the video at least once before starting on the project so you get a full picture of what is involved. When you’re ready to make one, remember not to stress. The project should be fun, relaxing, and even meditative! If you can’t finish it in one sitting, don’t fret about it. Set it aside, go about your other businesses, and pick it up once more when you’re ready to work on it again. Have fun with it!
