Kusudama (design by Daniel Reutsky)

This model was a lot of fun to put together.  The angles and geometry make it a really interesting beauty. I recommend the use of paper clips or clothes pins as it needs the support of other units to keep it together.  No glue is necessary.  I used 3 different patterns of washi weight paper, I find they went together pretty harmoniously.

I found the diagrams on OrigamiUSA's January-February issue of The Fold, which is available online, for members.  If you are not yet a member, you are missing out.
