Woooow thanks for sharing! I’ve seen photos of these around but never a tutorial! My Fiance will be excited…I want to use pomanders for decor, but he’s not a fan – he’ll love this!

Where is a good place to get origami paper? For not that expensive? I haven’t looked around too much online, but I figured someone might know.  

I love these flowers, they are so cute!

I’ve been working on my Kusudama balls for a while now and I love them….I’ll take a pic of one and post it tomorrow…..(they’re at work…thats where I’ve been working on them at)..

I bought 12×12 scrap book papers and cut them into fours…..that way I got papers with designs. Alot of Origami papers don’t come packaged as one solid color…they come in multipacks…and usually a bunch of colors you don’t want. Since I’m making balls of all different sizes, some on the papers I didin’t cut.

My only worry with the scrapbook pages is most of them only have a design on one side. Did you get double sided ones? Does it look as good if one side is white?

@ amandalynn….because of the way you have to fold the papers, the designs end up inside and out.

@christalynn11- I have never seen these before but these look so beautiful. May I ask when you used them for cupcakes were they too big or just the right size?
