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.
|Accurately stretch and squash the middle creases to make the flower's core, and then bend edges of petals slightly.||The element for the kusudama "Lotus" is ready!||The 6 flowers are glued together by points of the petals. In this way, flowers make a sphere, where four flowers take a position on the equator and two others are at the poles.|
