Oh how pretty!!!
Kusudama (薬玉; lit. medicine ball) a paper model formed by sewing or gluing units together. Some origami artists dislike the use of papercutting and gluing, but I like them since they make lovely decorations. For ‘true’ modular origami, the artist Tomoko Fuse comes to mind.
Kusudama balls (as they are commonly known as, even though the translation comes out wrong) are the most common form of modular origami there is. I’ve made plenty in the past, before I started my venture in ‘true’ modular origami. (I even did a tutorial on how to make a single flower if you’ve never made one before, although it was done in an older format.) Here’s some tips to make your average kusudama stand out.
Firstly, create your twelve units! Pretty paper is the best choice, I used floral. And opt for two, or six colours. Not three… It’s hard to coordinate.
