Kusudama Flowers - Spreading the Beauty

One of my online discoveries years ago was directions on how to make Kusudama paper flowers.  I made one style from old book pages and used them in this centerpiece.

And I put up a blog post about it back in 2012 here.

Recently, I received a very nice email from a student in Australia, Mackenzie Page.  She was working on a art project inspired by the work of others for a school assignment. She chose my paper flowers as her inspiration. Part of the assignment required communication with the original artist so she emailed me. I answered her questions and asked that she send along a photo of her finished work.  I received I nice email last week with several photos.  She took my idea of the flowers and a branch but from it, created her own variation. It is a mobile with the flowers hanging in descending strings.  The view up is an incredible one.

Makes for a stunning crib mobile. Nice job Mackenzie!
