Kusudama Flowers

Hi everyone and Happy Friday!!

First, before I forget- I want to remind you that today is Pink by Design Fan Flash Friday–where you post a fun project you’ve done on the Pink by Design Facebook wall–after I have.  Then, I will pick a winner out of the people who have posted projects!  You don’t have to use a Pink by Design stamp, you just have to post a fun project you’ve made!  So, be sure to get over there and do that…because today’s winner will get the Everyday Cricut Cartridge!! Woohoo!

 

Okay…now onto my project!

Remember those BE-A-U-tiful flowers I posted pictures of after CHA from then Glitz booth?

Well, I found out that these are an origami flower called a Kusodama Flower–and I just had to try it…and of course make a video for you!!

Now, mine do not look anywhere near as beautiful–and mine are much smaller than these…but, I loved learning how to do them…and now I might just be addicted!!


In total I needed 5-6 petals to make a flower…and then I needed 12 flowers to make my Kusudama ball.  Which means there’s quite a bit of folding :).  I used 4×4 inch squares.

 

Here is my finished Kusudama Ball using SEI paper mostly, and some Bo Bunny 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!! Let me know if you decide to make your own flowers–I’d love to see them!!!

Have a great weekend!
