Fold 1: Fold the square into a triangle. Fold 2: Fold the two creased corners up to create a smaller triangle.
Fold 3: Fold the two triangular flaps in half. Fold 4: Open these flaps up then fold them flat so that the crease created in Fold 3 falls down the center of the triangular piece.
Fold 5: Fold the tips down. Fold 6: Fold the triangular flaps in half. The final shape of the paper after these six folds will be a square.
To create a petal, the folded piece must be rolled open. Figure 1 shows the flaps which require adhesive. Apply white glue with a glue brush and carefully roll open the petal and attach the two flaps together. Allow the adhesive to tack up. Repeat steps one and two to create five petals. Joining five petals together will create one Kusudama flower. Apply a strip of adhesive to the inner crease of one petal, and adhere a second petal to the adhesive. Once these two petals have been joined, continue the process to join five petals together.
