Kusudama-ball of flowers - a wonderful giftto close people for any holiday. Very long time ago, in Japan, they were hung at the head of a sick person, and inside they put medicinal herbs. Kusudams are considered to be the forerunners of modular origami, although many disagree with this, as one component of their manufacture is the gluing of parts, and modular origami provides only the insertion of modules. Manufacturing technology: 1.Clean square sheet of colored paper must be folded in half so that a triangle is obtained; 2.Bend the triangle to the middle so that a rhombus turns out; 3.Otgibayem corner and bend it once again in half to the middle (see figure); 4.Podgibayem angles down; 5. The resulting shape is turned off by a cone, and the inner edges are glued together - a petal is obtained (for each flower, five such petals are needed); 6. We produce glued lobes together; 7. Collected flowers glue together the petal to the petal; Even inside the flower at gluing it is possible to enclose a braid or a woven string, then the kusudama can be hung up.
