Kusudama Ball

May is here!! Time to break out the shorts and flip flops right!? HA HA HA We lost the last little tiny patch of snow in our yard a few days ago. I have even managed to get a little sunburnt a few times in the last few weeks. I am also proud to say both my kids passed their Hunters Safety Ed class YAY!! Ok back to crafting :D This weeks theme was something May Day themed. I, at first, went right for the most obvious. A little cone with some paper flowers. Then I sat back and thought about it and remembered this link I had saved a while back with a project I really wanted to make. I thought OH!! This would be PERFECT! Its called a Kusudama Flower ball. Uses some origami folds. I got out my papers and went to work! I even made another one in blue for my Grandma. ~*Jen*~

I picked out my papers and for this project I went with a lighter weight cardstock so it would be easier to fold.

Folded them all

Started gluing the individual petals

Then glued them into 5 petal flowers

Each half of a ball takes 6 flowers

Then you glue each half together add the buttons and bling and hang!
