I love paper crafts and how easily you can make beautiful things with just a bit of folding and gluing. These kusudama flowers are a perfect example of how, in less than an hour and with less than one dollar you can create something lovely for spring. To make a single flower all you need are 5 3x3 inch square pieces of paper, some hot glue and a little patience.
They actually look a lot more complicated than they really are. I used this tutorial from Folding Trees and made my first flower in about 15 minutes. Essentially you fold 5 of the same shapes and then you glue them together like you see in the picture below. I used scrapbooking paper for my flowers because that’s what I had on hand but they would be easier and turn out more exact if you used something thinner like origami paper.
I’m going to add some stems to mine and make myself a pretty paper flower bouquet to add to my spring decor!
