Kusudama Fever

5.4.2009 7 Comments

I first found out about kusudama from a lovely tutorial by Folding Trees, and lately I’m seeing these beautiful origami flowers in many places. I’m just loving the growing trend of using paper flowers for decoration!

Kusudama Origami Flowers

#1 & #2 are gorgeous kusudama from Flickr user Malia (her “Origami” gallery is a must see), which inspired #3 Rag & Bone to create a garden of kusudama made from book pages. Check out the lovely new Rag & Bone postcard, inspired by their eco friendly kusudama.

#4 & #5 Spotted over at the wonderful wedding blog, The Inspired Bride, sweet kusudama decorations — cupcake toppers and a kusudama garland — from Millalove on Etsy.
