More about the easy kusudama flowers with Nesties

Last week, pre-back injury, I mentioned making the kusudama flowers using a variety of Nestabilities dies for the basic shapes.

A reminder of the method:

And a reminder of the various versions:

There were a couple of little peculiarities with a few of the dies (the scalloped circle and the pinked circle in particular) that are worth noting. It matters WHERE you make the first in-half fold – you must have the little half-scallop or half-triangle  at the fold for the rest of the folding to work easily.

And the side-in folds sort of skip a step, instead matching up the scallops or the points.

Following on from THAT, on these, the joining area is a little less distinct than it is when beginning with a square, for example. And of course I am joining five units rather than only four. I addressed more of the specifics in a PDF I made.  You can download that here.

It shouldn’t be a huge stretch to work out how to make a flower ball from these units, like those made with the traditional kusudama flowers.

Have fun with them!
