ORIGAMI KUSUDAMA GARDEN will show you how to make delightful floral paper spheres, called Kusudama. Kusudama is a decorative paper ball usually made of several modules, folded from paper and then connected together to form an attractive sphere.
Do-It-Yourself - fold delightful kusudama models, originally designed by Katrin and Yuri Shumakov, which incorporate flowers like Roses, Bellflowers, Lotus, Sunflowers and more, even a Poinsettia: a Christmas flower, to create special seasonal decorations. Most of the kusudama designs in this book use no glue, just clever folded paper locks in their assembly. In some designs, modules are sewn or just glued together to shape a sphere.
There are 334 detailed step-by-step colorful diagrams with written instructions and photos of examples of completed projects that will guide you through folding the 18 original origami designs. In each article, there are recommendations on paper type and size including an indication of the size of the completed model. The designs are from simple to intermediate / complex level of folding. The article "Magic of Kusudama" introduces the kusudama, shedding some light on how they were used in ancient Japan and how kusudama designs keep their charm in the present.
You can use these kusudama designs to decorate for a shower, wedding reception, or birthday party - these beautiful spheres will bring a magic touch to your event. The origami floral spheres can be a treasured gift for your friends and family too. Have a wonderful and fun time with this book creating a whole garden of hanging kusudama delights! Happy folding!
