Lots Of Kusudamas


Hello Bloggers!

I am still around. I haven't fall off blog land yet.  I took time off from blogging because I was busy making these


Here are more




And here are five more that I am working on


I made about 20 of them.

Here is how I assembled them. I folded all the pieces that I need.  Then I glued each piece and I used paper clips to hold the piece together.


After the glue dried, about 5 - 10 minutes, I took them  off the paper clip and pushed them open and glued 2 pieces together like shown

I waited until the glue dried, then I glued that 2 pieces together
I waited again until the glue dried then I glued the last piece in to make the petal or whatever you called that 5 petals piece.


Although the petals looked the same, but they were not.  Once the glue is completely dried, I took the 12 petals and tried to fit them together like a puzzle.

They are beautiful but my favorite are the white and the purple one.

I'm entering this to

Make it Monday

Catch The Bug


Thanks for checking in with me.  I am going to be off again.

Helen

They are so beautiful and well folded! I like a lot the way you embelished them with beads! I know is a lot of work, but worth it! I am making now some kusudamas for Christmas, hope I will be able to make a tutorial for them. I am sure you will love to fold a few:) And they don't need glue ;)
