The kusudama – the flower ball is made up of six Lotus flowers. Use 6 squares of paper, identical in size. You will also need paper glue.
|Sink the top point: Open out the model slightly, unfold the paper at the top corner, crease the four sides of the inner square into mountain folds. Push down on the middle of the square and collapse the sides toward the middle, thereby completing the sink.||This should be the result.
Turn the model around.
|Pull down the corner, at the same time fold the one "page" to the right, as shown.|
