Creating an origami "kusudama"- family and yes, they have a relative, you can see it in the first comment. ;-)

Do you know how 'Riddle' looks like?... I will upload that photo in a few days.


All folded from the same simple folded unit, which I found in an old booklet "Unit-Origami" by David Petty. And you can make different forms depending on how many units are assembled.


The complete green one is made of 4 original units.

But I discovered that the back was beautiful too. So I made the one in the middle using 12 backsides units.

The first one the left is also made of 12 units, 3 original, 3 backside and 3 of a third variation. Just turning the paper and do the fold sequence and you get a color change ;-)

With this last variation I made the big one on the upper right, 30 units.


All folded from thick foil, square 6,5x6,5cm, glue needed.
