For one thing I cannot believe that I didn't even know how to make this flower when I first noticed it last Christmas in the store next to mine. It was an ornament for the tree. Then I went to a baby shower and it was the center pieces on all the tables. Then I go to Etsy and it is ALL OVER in there. But what the HECK is it called! After searching relentlessly I finally find it. Kusudama Flower! Unbelievable. Origami. Of course. Apparently I have the only origami book in all the land that did not have this in it. So any how, .....after making one petal I couldn't stop. I have been making them for weeks! WEEKS I tell you! Addicting?...um, yeah. I have indents in my thumbnails from all the folding. Now I was going to post a whole bunch of pics showing you how to do it, but I am having some technical difficulty (surprise, surprise) uploading my photos. I used an old dictionary for my paper, and cut it in 3in. x 3in. squares. So here is the website that I learned from www.origami-instructions.com they have LOTS of direction on there. To make the ball as shown you will need 70 squares of paper. Each flower has 5 petals. and I glued the flowers into groups of three. When done making your groups you should have 4 clusters. Now all you have to do is is piece them together and then add a ribbon for hanging and maybe some sort of embellishment for the flower centers.
