and a fun project to do with kids and friends
Each paper art form may be different.
One of my favorites is to create Sakura flowers
Starts out large–sample here in a 15 cm (or 5 7/8″) paper
combining two enchanting traditions–Japanese art of Ikebana (aka flower arrangement) and the ancient practice of origami (aka paper folding.) Five units of paper petal folded and glued together (which some do not consider true origami)
Still pretty! One kusudama has 12 modular flowers
Unit sample in 5 cm (or 2″) washi, traditional Japanese paper
60 pieces of washi in all!
Make 12 flowers, then glue into one Kusudama Ball
Be very creative with color, size, and form…a full charge will let you have hours of joyous entertainment.
Same 12-unit Firework origami transforms to various form…like a real firework
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
