Kusudama – flower

Origami Kusudama Flowers are one of the cutest origami creations. It is easy enough for kids to make with little adult supervision. These origami can be given as a present or it can be just nice decoration…

What we need:

origami paper or just thick paper – different colours, glue, scissors

How to do it:

  • Cut paper into squares – choose size on your own (for example 5×5 cm) … to make one part of all Kusudama flowers you need at least 5 squares.

3rd picture – Take one square.
4th picture – Flip it so that the white side is on top and fold bottom corner to top.
5th picture – You get a triangle, now hold the right corner and put it to the top point.
6th picture – Now put the left corner to the top. You will get a square.
7th picture – Fold the right flap down so that it matches the edge of square. Press firmly.
8th picture – Fold down the left flap so that it matches the left edge of the square.
9th picture – Open the right side flap as shown to flatten them.

10th picture – Open the left side flap in the same way.
11th picture – Fold the top triangle on the right side towards you. Crease gently.
12th picture – Fold similarly on the left side.
13th picture – Fold the triangles back.
14th picture – Put little glue on the edges as shown.
15th picture – Glue the outside triangles and hold it till it sticks.
16th picture – One of the five petals is ready.
17th picture – Make five such petals.
18th picture – Glue the five petals together to make a flower.

Then you can do more “little flowers” as in 18th picture and put together with glue as in picture at the top of this article. You can decorate it with pearls, glitters and everything what you want. Finally you can clip on a ribbon.

Enjoy it 🙂
