Kusudama 1: Bleeze

The first of many Kusudama Ball Origami. This design here is called Bleeze. The very first design I made together with my sis. 12 pieces of papers were used and 6 small pieces were used for the centres.
Kusudama is a decorative paper ball for festive
occasions. Origanally, it was an ornamental scent bag hung to clear away noxious
vapors, thus the name "Kusu" (medicine) + "Dama" (ball).
