Origami Kusudama Flowers

Night in with Wine and Origami Flowers

Nicole Make it. Fix it. Do it Yourself.

I’ve been wanting to make some origami flowers for ages and finally decided to try it out.

Found a really easy tutorial here. Poured a glass of wine and away we go…

I used some old printer paper that was lying around.

And some sticks, I collected on one of my evening walks in the park.

I used all-purpose UHU glue bought from Fred Aldous, to stick the bits together.

First Complete Flower, excuse the wine in the background 🙂


I had a drop of wine left over and decided it would be a good idea to stain the tips of the petals to give my origami flowers a bit more character.

Super pleased at how they turned out!
