Kusudama Tutorial part 2

Today I am showing you part 2 of how to make a kusudama ball. You can find the first part here. 


Kusudama Tutorial part 1

The Japanese kusudama is a paper ball made out of multiple identical origami shapes glued together. They were traditionally used as a  ball for incense or potpourri but now we see them more for decoration or as a gift.

Today I am showing you part 1 on how to make the Japanese traditional shape. There are many different patterns to make a kusudama ball but I find this the easiest pattern to get started. This is also the pattern I used to make the pink flowers on the tree in the banner.
