I love trying out new origami patterns, and this is one of my favourites.  This flower is probably one of the quicker and easier origami designs that I have attempted.  It consists of five identical petals joined together. 

I have seen a whole bunch of these flowers (usually 12 or more) made into 3D balls, which look amazing!  These flower balls are called a kusudama, (which means “medicine ball” in Japanese but usually refers to a spherical paper model of identical paper units attached to each other).  I haven’t tackled a kusudama yet!

I used the following instructions from the website: to make my flower.  It also shows a kusudama example.  If you ever decide to make one, I’d love to know, and would happily post pictures of it on my blog!

I have a few more origami installments coming in the next week or so, but in the next day or two, I hope to share with you some wonderful interior styling that is sure to get your creative adrenalin moving!

Thanks for looking!

Love Ruth xx
