Mio Tsugawa’s Arabesque in Fruit Loops

This is one of the models that I made in Paraguay and was a gift for my cousin Lujan. These make really good little presents because they have a solid structure and are easy to handle. Made in tough 10 x 10 cm. fabriano paper in red, yellow and orange so they won’t be able to accidentally take them apart, you have to pull very hard. Now if you see the one you gave your friend for her birthday missing a few pieces go ahead and make them a new one.

This model took me about three days to fold. You need to fold 30 individual units (10 of each color)  and later put them together.

lost kusudama- first post

Not all lost, I just don’t have them with me. I scatter them around as gifts and tend to leave them in the apartments when I move.

These aren’t all of them either, but most.
