Item description for Kusudama Origami by Tomoko Fuse...

Kusudama is a decorative ball, which is originally used on festive occasions. It is now popular as ornaments and mobiles. Kusudama origami is composed of a variety of units joined together. It is different from ordinary unit origami, because it uses string or glue to put it together. This book illustrates how to make a basic traditional kusudama by adding colorful simple units together. In the same method, the book introduces a basic cube with four square sides and a basic ball that combines six square sides and eight regular triangle sides. Their enchanting applications will be irresistible to you. Also included are such fascinating projects as a hydrangea, a handball of bellflowers, a bouquet of lilies and a sea urchin.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kusudama Origami?

Very Cool!  Jun 25, 2008
My 16-year-old daughter loves origami and is presently making an origami bouquet of 24 flowers from this book. Just know that this is fairly advanced origami. One flower takes her about 15 minutes, and then the flowers will have to be put together with string!
Pretty Xmas Origami  May 12, 2008
I became the shipment very quickly. I like this book, because the instructions are short and clear.
Another of Fuse's masterpeices  Nov 4, 2007
Another of Fuse's masterpieces

For some reason, I think Fuse has the pictures of the ugliest models on the front cover of this book! Inside are some really beautiful models.

The models are easy enough for new folders, who are determined (You have to fold a lot of the same thing, and then join them together using needle and thread, so you don't see results until the very end).

All in all, a great book.
Awesome  May 3, 2005
The models are very easy for an experienced folder and turn out beautiful. Everybody whom I have shown them to was amazed. The figures are wonderful and are great gifts.
Fun and interesting designs  Nov 9, 2004
I bought this book a couple of weeks ago and can't seem to stop folding...The instructions are easy to follow, provided you know a little bit about origami (just some basic folding techniques, which you can learn online.) The designs are very interesting, though very time consuming. Block out some time to do this! When I finished my first Kusudama piece, I was so pleased at how beautiful it was. I have experimented with lots of different papers and achieved great results, even with papers that were not japanese. My favorite is the bouquet of lilies, which is stunning in bright colors. I definitely recommend this book to those who would like to pick up a new hobby and wow their friends and family with amazing gifts.
