asked for a tutorial on how to make a kusudama waaaaaay back in December. I hadn't check my Deviantart account for QUITE a while, so you can imagine how late my reply was. *insert nervous laughter*
Anyways, this is how to make one of the flowers for the kusudama ball (as I've written in the tutorial TWICE already). I'll be making another tutorial with how to assemble all 32 pieces, since there are at least 2 ways (that I know of) you can do it. I'll also include a "how to make a simple tassel", and I'll work on it as soon as I can.
This is my first tutorial ever, and I did the mistake of writing at 25% zoom level without realizing it was 25% until the end. My writing is a little messy up close, and I apologize for that. If you have any troubles making the flower, let me know. I usually give instructions orally rather than "FOLLOW THESE PICTURES!!!" , so there might be a little confusion.
Otherwise, good luck and don't give up too soon!
