I discovered kusudama flowers a couple of days ago and I could't resist making a ball.

I used this tutorial: Part 1 and Part 2.

I think kusudama balls are really pretty, even if they take lots of time to be made. The paper I used is a little too heavy for origami, but it makes the ball tough and... well, I didn't have any other colorful paper  Wink

I saw that tutorial & made must 1 of the 4 petals, it's pretty easy. I like your ball, the colors are bright.

Yeah, it's easy to make, but very time consuming  Grin 60 petals to make a ball.

That's amazing! Thanks for sharing!
I was so inspired I had to try it for myself (thank you for the tutorial links).

I didn't have any nice paper around the house, so I used pages from a phonebook instead.
My kusudama can be viewed here: http://katicrafts.wordpress.com/2010/06/18/kusudama/
I also linked this forum post to my blog (hope that's ok!)

How lovely! I wonder how hard it would be to put some lights in there.... I can't tell from the photos, are there even any cracks from which the light could peek? Either way, this is wonderful.
