These exquisite flowers come to us by way of Folding Trees. In this tutorial, we're introduced the art of Japanese kusudama, which, traditionally, are used to make balls into which are deposited incense or potpourri.

To make 12 flowers, you'll need:

  • 60 pieces of paper cut into squares. FT suggests each piece should be 7 x 7 cm or 3" square
  • Glue

P.S. Note how Folding Trees made use of flowers like these on their banner. Lovely!

Hey J! Welcome back!

I just logged back in after being away for so long. I LOVE that I see this tutorial on here. I've been doing these flowers with my nieces out of Stickie notes. It's FUN on a boring day!
