Kusudama Raya

Hari Raya tahun ni aku hias rumah aku dengan origami (seni lipatan kertas dari Jepun). Just want to share with my friends how to make Kusudama.

STEP 1
Take the paper square, and fold it in half the diagonal way. It should now look like a triangle.










STEP 2
Take the two 45 degree angle flaps, and fold them to the top point. You should now have a formed square.













STEP3
Fold the flaps backwards, half way, so that the folded back edges line up with the edges of the
square beneath.

 
 STEP 4
Unfold as shown.







  

STEP5
Open each flap and flatten it along the creases made in the previous steps. If you are confused, take a look at the image for further guidance.









STEP 6
Turn it over.









STEP 7
Fold one of the triangular flaps in, against itself.
















STEP 8
Repeat with the other flap and turn over again.









STEP 9
There should be a crease going along the middle of each of the 
 two flaps or triangles, fold along those creases.









STEP10
Glue the top of the folded flaps, or where indicated by the image. Using a glue stick may be a good idea, since it dries so quickly, or you can use white liquid glue as shown here.

 






STEP 11
Take the folded flaps and bring them together, fastening them in place, it may slip off, so you could try lightly taping it together, or hold it in place.









STEP 12
Make four more of these.









STEP 13
Apply glue to the "center" of each piece. The "center" is where the folded edges meet (where they were glued together previously). Spread out the glue so that the centers of the pieces can stick together securely.












STEP 14 
Wait for the glue to dry completely, otherwise, the petals will slip apart.










STEP 15

Repeat with all of the other petals. Glue everything together in a circular formation. Using paperclips to hold the petals together works well.

STEP 16
You are now finished.









Selamat Mencuba seni lipatan daripada Jepun....
