Which one is your favourite flower kusudama?
>>572882Look at this cutie
>>573022Beautiful, I’m always too intimidated to make one though
>>573022do you happen to have the pattern for this one? i can´t find it with google image search. I've been trying to find it in the watermark's site
>>573071nevermind, i found it.http://kusudama.info/2012/03/tsvetochnaya-epopeya-ch-1/The flowers are from "Hana no kusudama" by Mariko Kubo over a "Lazy" Electra base. I can't figure out the green leaves, hopefully i can give it a try after my finals.
>>573073The green leaves are a lily base you can find on YouTube. Video here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zb2xBlM7EYI&feature=related
I made my mom one of these for mother's day because the hospital didn't allow real flowers. Didn't turn out the best. My advice is, if you're gonna make one, make sure you put something inside the flowers because of you don't, they don't stick in the base very well.
>>573756do you have a template for this?
I just love the simplicity
>>573758This is the kusudama https://stranamasterov.ru/node/326784This is the flowerhttps://stranamasterov.ru/node/53305This is the leaveshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zb2xBlM7EYIThe proportions are 1:2.14:2.2 kusudama:flower:leaves. The final project is roughly three times taller than the height of the kusudama. You will need 30 sheets to construct the kusudama.
