Here is the tutorial I used:
http://foldingtrees.com/2008/11/kusudama-tutorial-part-1/

I've never made anything with paper besides cards so I'm pretty impressed with myself.  It did take what seemed like an eternity but for my first try not bad.

i love that its really cute!

is it the size of a christmas ornament or is it bigger? it would be super awesome to make some like that but on a larger scale and put a light in the middle! (maybe you would have to use vellum for the paper though to get any light out)

This one is really quite big - a bit bigger than a large glass sized ornament.  I am going to make smaller squares and see how big the next one comes out.  I would really like to make them in colorful Christmas paper and give out as ornaments this year.
