Origami Kusudama Flowers

I'm so glad you are joining me to learn how to fold origami Kusudama flowers! If you've ever watched an origami tutorial on YouTube, and felt frustrated because they went too fast, this is your chance to say, "Slow down!" or "Can you show me that step again?" Once you get the hang of folding the petals you'll find folding origami is a relaxing and soothing activity. I like to fold while I watch TV at night. Please be sure to have all the materials gathered and ready to go at the start of class. You'll be following along with me step-by-step. I use a second camera in my classroom, so you'll be able to see my hands and desktop clearly as I fold. Be assured that even if you are the only student enrolled I will still teach class. I don't cancel my classes due to low enrollment. If you have any questions about the class or the materials needed please let me know. I'll be happy to help!

Description

Friday, March 19, 2021
7 PM to 8 PM Eastern
One Time Class

Origami Kusudama Flowers are made of 5 individual folded units, that are attached together. Finished flowers can be used for gift packaging or can be glued to “stems”.

Learn how to fold paper step-by-step into an origami petal. After the petals are folded, they will be glued together. Previous experience with origami folding is not necessary. In this one hour class, students will make one to three flowers. The amount of flowers made during the class will depend on the pace of the learner. Instructions will be given on how to attach flowers to a “stem”.

During the class, you will also view a slideshow of ways to use the finished origami kusudama flowers. Traditionally, they are sewn or glued together to form hanging balls. I use a second camera in my classroom, so you will have a close-up view of my hands and desktop as I fold the paper. Origami paper folding is relaxing, and you’ll end the class with at least one beautiful flower and the knowledge to make more on your own!

Be assured that even if you are the only student enrolled, I will still teach class. I don’t cancel my classes due to low enrollment.

If you have any questions about the class or the materials needed please let me know. I’ll be happy to help!

What to learn?

How to fold paper into petals. How to assemble petals to make a flower. Decorative options for finished flowers. Basic history of origami Kusudama flowers.

Requirements

  • >Paper
  • Each flower has 5 petals, so you will need at least 15 pieces of precut paper.
  • The pieces of paper should be precut into squares. You'll need five pieces that are the same size for each flower. Most learners make one to three flowers total. Your flowers can be made from different sized squares of paper. Just make sure you have five of each size for each flower you make. Cut them into 4 1/2 inch to 6 inch squares. If you don't have much experience with origami, you should use 6 inch squares because they are easier to work with.
  • Origami paper is OK, but not necessary. My sample was made with pages from an old atlas and astro-bright copy paper. You can use printer paper, looseleaf paper, magazine pages, book pages or any paper that is easy to fold.
  • >Paperclips or mini clothespins or mini binder clips (at least 10)
  • >White or clear glue
  • >Glue stick
  • Optional
  • > Washi tape
