hey everyone! Grin
If you would like to watch a japanese craftsman in motion making these japanese hair kanzashi everyone's been talking about, go to the videos on Edo Hair Ornaments at http://www.tourism.metro.tokyo.jp/english/tra/goods04.html#06 interesting note: these guys use a long, skinny pair of tweezers to make their petals more accurate. have fun!

i highly suggest to anyone having trouble to watch the video that was linked above.  Click on video # 2. It shows the entire folding process in slow-mo and made it super easy to follow.  I made one while watching it!

front:


the not-so attractive back:


and here is the same front with the other variation in look....I just used my finger to reshape the petals



I dont have anything to put on the middle, so I just laid that button there, but this was just a tester anyhow....thank for the tut and the link for us "folding-challenged"  Grin

Could you relay what the difference is for the "traditional" fold and your fold is?

Thanks...

Also, glue your petals down, don't sew them!
