For many years my family and I have enjoyed trying our hand at various origami projects. From animals to flowers and even Star Wars characters, we have enjoyed learning this ancient Asian art. These particular flowers are a type seen in Kudsudama. Typically one would make many of these flowers to form balls to hold potpourri and medicine. The flowers are not difficult to make and are quite spectacular when added to a favorite vase. I am no origami master but was able to master this flower quite easily. I hope you will give them a try too!

Supplies:

  • 3 inch x 3 inch origami paper
  • glue dots
  • pipe cleaners
  • decorative vase
