Kusudama Flower Ball


I learned how to make these flowers after seeing the eight billion tutorials (here's the BEST one) put out last year but was reminded about them when I saw a fellow Etsian featured in People magazine for her kusudama flower ornaments. Part of me hates when something becomes popular because I worry the value of the object lessens. Here is a lesson for me: do what you find beautiful. Again and again, if you want.

Here's how my desk looks after working this weekend. I don't even have the finished products on it!

  1. @Melanie - Brian can hardly ever find socks he like - thick and up to the knee. I have vowed to help him with his sock dilemma. It's a wifely duty.

    and thought of you :) I bet you could make some kick-ass rolled paper art.

  4. Making socks for your husband?! I never would have foreseen it in 1987. I love reading your posts and imagining your voice saying them. It's just like being back in the dorm!

  5. Skye - was I a militant feminist? I don't remember! And I haven't made a sock yet - I plan on making my first one on our family trip to Vegas. If I works, I'll post pictures. :)

  6. Just found your blog, and I must say thank you for the wealth of paper folding I am finding. I can hardly wait until I have enough free time to go through the whole archives!
