To create these beautiful Kusudama Bridal bouquets I started out following one of these 2 websites that show you the process in folding each pedal of the flowers:
posted this tutorial on how I attached the stems to the flowers.
On 27 May 2012, I shared how I created a bouquet out of all the stemed Kusudama flowers.
To complete the look of the bridal bouquets, on 10 June 2012 I explained how I decorated the bouquets by adding fuller with tulle and wrapped the stems with ribbon.
This is the Bride's bouquet. It consists of 50 Kusudama flowers and tulle with added embellishments. There are 3 different size flowers, assembled from 3", 4", and 4.6" squares.
For some additional personalization I made some flowers with "sentiments" that are special to the couple.
The first 3 bouquets are for the Bridesmaids. They are made up of 25 flowers, assembled from 3", 4", and 4.6" squares.
Here's picture of the stem of one of the Bridesmaid bouquet.
The bouquet on the left is the Junior Bridesmaid bouquet and the one on the right is one of the Bridesmaid bouquets.
The Junior Bridesmaid bouquet is made from 25 flowers all assembled from 3" squares.
This is by far the most extensive crafting project I have done but definitely the most rewarding. I'll admit there were times when I dreaded having to fold another piece of paper but I am VERY pleased with the results!!
Once my hands have recovered from all the folding, gluing, steming, and wrapping, I have so many ideas for these beautiful flowers!! First off, I'm definitely going to try my hand at making a Kusudama ball. :o)
Thanks for looking!!
