~ゆりくす玉~ Kusudama Lily

I hardly remember the last time I worked on kusudama project. I think it's already around 2 years ago for Lia's wedding...
Recently I had the urge to make kusudama again and I thought that I will try to make the thread type. It means that the kusudama units are connected by thread.

This is my first project for thread type of kusudama which created by Tomoko Fuse :

I made it from shocking pink and yellow 120g papers sized 7cm x 7cm. The main ball consists of 24 units of origami lily.
I also attached 2 metallic green swallowtail butterflies made from 7cm x 7cm metallic green origami papers and a mix green tassel :

When I finished making it, one of my aunt saw it ans asked me to make one for her so she can hang it in her car. I make the smaller one because I think the size of the pink one will bother her vision while driving :

I made this one from 5cm x 5 cm 120g red papers for the main ball and metallic gold origami papers for the butterflies.
Here's the comparison for the size of these 2 Lily Kusudamas :

I'm eyeing another flower kusudama by Tomoko Fuse. But I will finish my paper model projects first which are currently pending because I had to make the pink lily kusudama for a farewell present which I'll give to my former Japanese teacher. She will be leaving soon after the new year, so I have to finish it first then I'll continue to work on the paper model project.

Winter Layout

I know it's pretty late to change the layout since winter has came for quite sometimes. But I still want to bring winter feel for this journal since I don't live in a country which experience winter every year. Well at least this journal makes me feel so..   hehe

I'll have pretty long break from office so I'm going to work on paper crafts again since I have some people I want to give a small present later. So, I'll see you again when they're done   grin

Yuichi deshita!
