Blue Kusudama Flowers

So my swim coach, Yuri Suguiyama, has left my team NCAP (formerly CUBU), for his dream job coaching at California Berkeley. While I miss him, I am so happy that he has an oppurtunity to do this. A little about Yuri- he's a great person, a passionate coach, and someone I, along with many other people, look up to and greatly respect.

I made this bouquet as a parting gift- it's been a tradition of mine to give him origami on his birthdays, and he still has my models. Though I doubt these flowers, along with my other origami, is going to survive in his suitcase. It's the thought that counts.

Autumn Presence

Autumn Presence This flower bouquet is the perfect thing to warm up your living room during a cold fall day. There are warm orange and ambient yellow flowers, along with a hot flash of red flowers. On request, these flowers may come wrapped in a ribbon, as a gift for that special someone. With Fall coming, I wanted to make a warm bouquet. I love simple colors, and simplr flowers. And I love photography. This is perhaps one of my favorite flowers yet :). Shop Link: All Proceeds to Charity!

So, I've been busy lately, but VOILA here are my Naomiki Sato Roses.
They are variations of the New Kawasaki Rose, and I believe these are the HARDEST yet most BEAUTIFUL things I've ever made.
Seriously, I just love these roses. I feel so smart for figuring these out.
Now I KNOW this is bad for my business, but here's the tutorial. Happy folding!


Here are some of my wedding bouquets that I've made.
I've also added the swirl rose-I have a tutorial for that too, just look at my earlier posts.

The traditional red rose wedding/gift bouquet. Represents love :)

Origami Starry Night Flowers

8 Petal Flower:
Swirl Rose:

I just want to say, that I did NOT make these flowers. The credit goes to MyBohemianSummer

Origami Little Island

This was ecspecially fun to make-it was light, and only needed 15 pieces of paper!
Well, it needed 30 units, but they were all half squares. I love how this ball isn't bulky and weighed down by so many folds of paper!

You need thirty units, and the tutorial is up there!
