How to make a Kusadama flower.
Take a square piece of paper of any size.
( I have used 15cm)
Fold in half, corner to corner.
Bring the left and right hand corners up to the top centre corner.
Next, fold the left and right corners down, to meet the edge of the paper.
Flatten the flaps, use your finger to open them up and then squash carefully so it looks like this.
Fold the triangles down.
Fold the triangles back the other way tucking them inside.
Your petal should now look like this.
Refold the side flaps and put glue along the edge (shown in Black) and bring both edges together.
Your first petal. Now repeat and make 4 more petals.
Glue all five petals and use a stick, pipe cleaner etc for the stalk.
Your finished Kusadama flower.
If you don’t have any paper then junk mail works very well also.
We would love to see your finished flowers.
If you would like to email me any photos then we will be able to put them on the website.
