Kusudama – “Kirikomi Kiriko Tourou – Bara Kasane”

This is the “Kirikomi Kiriko Tourou – Bara Kasane” (切り込み切子 灯篭 – バラ重ね) model from the Kusudama Origami book. This model has a different faceted face which I like a little more than my previous but very similar “Kirikomi Kiriko Tourou – Hana Suisha” model. I used pink floral patterned paper and decorated it with […]

Kusudama – “Kirikomi Kiriko Tourou – Hana Suisha”

I have previously made a “Kirikomi Kiriko Tourou – Suisha” (切り込み切子 灯篭 – 水車) model from the Kusudama Origami book before.

I thought I should remake the model again but more securely, until I noticed a similar design in my Kusudama Origami book. This one was called “Gaku Mitsuya” […]
