Third Day of the Fifth Week of the School Summer Holidays - Kusudama Flowers

Today's craft project started with some humble post it notes

Earlier in the year whilst cropping with some friends, Sue made some gorgeous origami flowers. A quick google search will show different variations on those beautiful flowers which I discovered during my search are called Kusudama Flowers.

I thought Lara might be able to manage the folding and after showing her how to make one off she went and created a whole rainbow of flowers - far too many to photograph in fact. As I am posting this she is STILL making more!!! Hopefully she will remember the instructions and be able to make more in the future.

They are really dinky and so pretty in the pastel colours of the post it notes. I think they would look really nice as part of a table setting at a girly party.

These are stunning Karen and Lara, really pretty in those pastel colours and I think they would look perfect at a girly party. Sue has made some beautiful bouquets with her ones recently and as far as I know is working on Christmas ones now :)
Can't wait to see what you come up with next.xx

These are lovely, and judging by the post-it notes must be a cute size too. Enjoyed watching Sue make these too, and saw her make more lat crop. I shall miss these posts when Laura is back t school!
