Kusudama “Mitsuya Kiriko”

(Repost from Atelier Ilyere)

I bought this book a year ago by Tomoko Fuse (布施 知子) called “Kusudama Origami – Hanakiriko” (くす玉おりがみ – 花切子). I can read what the Japanese says, but I don’t know what it means! Fortunately, the book uses diagrams rather than explanations to construct models, hence why I bought it. Some of the models are pretty impressive, and recently I managed to make some of the models.

This model is called “Mitsuya Kiriko” (三ツ矢切子) – Again, I don’t know if that translates to anything, so I just to the translated reading of the phrase. It uses six square pieces with eight triangular connectors to form the model. Cutting is definitely involved as you need both square and triangular pieces, however glue is optional. Personally I use glue to make it more secure.

P1010456I had two leftover pieces of the pattern chiyogami left, so I made Yoshizawa butterflies out of them (the v2 version) and made them hang off the coloured twine, with matching coloured beads.

P1010457I love how amazing it looks when the entire thing is done. It makes a lovely decoration to hang off a door handle or something.

P1010455Materials: Eight 7.5cm chiyogami squares, eight 7.5cm duo-coloured paper triangles, coloured twine, coloured beads, PVA glue
