Kusudama by lintu47 Kusudama by lintu47

Thank you :heart:

Made for projecteducate's Try something new challenge fav.me/d55ic98 , which unexpectedly, i won :la:

My first ever Kusudama, or any other artisan craft for that matter.
It isn't perfect, but that's the best i could do using thick paper (nobody told me normal paper would be so much better T_T).
I used 12 flowers (5 petals each - 60 in total) to make this Kusudama.

It took me 6+ hours because of the paper - it was harder to fold and glue, which is why i suppose it took me so much (+ having no experience). I had glue all over my fingers and at one point i ended up with the glue bottle stuck on my foot (i used my feet to hold the bottle).

I tried to staple the first flower, but it looked horrible because of the thick paper (that flower is hanging from my ceiling right now), so i decided to use glue for the next ones.

The worst part in having thick paper for this is that when all the flowers have to be glued together is a real pain because they keep to unglue themselves (not flexile at all). I would not recommend thick paper!

I dedicate this to the very kind and talented jane-beata :iconjane-beata:. Take a look at her gallery, you'll fall in love with it :heart:

I tried to do this piece, but i don't do it on a daily basis. Thank you :)
It's simple to do this piece though, otherwise i, as a beginner, would've not succeeded in making it :heart:
