Before I even started planning this wedding, I was into origami. When I was younger I especially use to love it. I knew somehow that I would incorporate it into the wedding somehow. So when I joined weddingbee back in June, I was excited to see that some other brides using the Kusudama fold for flowers.
I decided that I would make these in varying sized to use in the wedding somehow. It takes 60 sheets of paper to make each ball. Each petal is a singel sheet of paper. Each flower is 5 petals. Each flower has a crystal in the middle.Here is the first one…..

I like that you mixed the patterns. It looks really nice. I also like the little crystals. A bit of sparkle without going overboard.

I love Kusudama flowers! I made a bouquet of them for my bf’s sister’s wedding rehearsal this summer. I love those pomanders; I never thought of doing anything like that before.

I’m also doing these too – Quick question – What kind of glue are you using to make the pieces stick? I’m having a hard time finding anything (other than hot glue) that will work. I’m not agaisnt hot glue but WOW its messy…
