Japanese Origami Paper Flowers

This past week, I discovered a cool new project to make and sell at my next craft show.  I saw these pretty Japanese Kusudama Paper Flowers online.  I thought they were so pretty, so I decided to try my hand at it.  Below is my first attempt.  I had a vase around the house that I used and this is my first paper flower arrangement.



These are really fun and so addictive!  People use all kinds of paper to make these.  I used mostly scrapbook paper, but I also used yellow copy paper and book pages.  I'm going to make some more and trying selling some of these arrangements at my next craft show.

How long does it take you to make each flower? Thanks.

It takes about 20-30 minutes. There are 5 petals to each flower. The petals are made individually and then glued together to make the flower.
