Origami Ornaments: The Ultimate Kusudama Book

Front Cover
St. Martin's Press, Nov 11, 2000 - Crafts & Hobbies - 160 pages

Based on the design of traditional Japanese Kusudama ceremonial spheres, Origami Ornaments offers step-by-step instructions on how to create colorful paper folding decorations--from disco balls and unique cubes to lovely globe and lantern shapes--while remaining true to origami purist standards.

Featuring four basic model designs--base, joiner, clip, and hinge--that can create limitless, unique ornaments, this orgiami book offers do-it-yourself designs small enough to hang on a Christmas tree or large enough to hold aromatic potpourri. As the ornaments rest they will open gently, like flowers, but still not come apart. Additional instructions for incorporating strings and tassels, as well as suggestions for utilizing different wrapping paper colors and patterns, will make these original ornaments dazzle.

Origami Ornaments is the perfect book for holiday crafters and origami enthusiasts alike.
