Modular Flower Kusudama

Origami Modular Flower Kusudama

After making all those flowers for my tutorial, I finally made a kusudama using them.

The kusudama requires a total of 12 flowers. With 5 petals to a flower, the complete kusudama requires 60 units. My biggest project to date!

The assembly is just a matter of glueing the flowers together. You will just need to ensure that each corner has a total of 3 petals overlapping.

Origami Modular Flower

This modular flower is quite popular and is simple to make. It is made from 5 separate petals that are folded and then glued together to form the flower.

It is also possible to form a kusudama from these flowers. Hopefully I should be able to complete my own kusudama in the days to come 🙂 It is quite time consuming, since there are 60 units involved in the kusudama (12 flowers in all and each of them made from 5 petals)

In case you have noticed, I fold my flower slightly different from the usual ones. Instead of 3 stamens (??), there is only one in mine. I found that 3 stamens make the flower quite crowded, so made some small changes. I will be posting a tutorial for folding the flower with the variation in my next post. Be sure to check it out 🙂
