This book is for diligent folders who enjoy playing with colors and shapes.
While traditional kusudamas (paper ball flowers) consist of funnel-shaped elements, which are held together in the middle with a thread to form a ball, Tomoko Fuse folds kusudamas by assembling different modules.
The individual modules, all of which are formed by a half-square, are very easy to fold. Often a second element is integrated into the basic module for decoration – thus creating an enormous variety of shapes. The assembling of the individual modules is very clearly explained on the basis of diagrams, but requires a little patience and concentration.
For a large ball you need 30 modules, for a small ball 12 modules and for a cube 6 modules. The module is identical in each case.
Difficulty level: easy to medium
