Creative child. Dear friend, today we`ll try to acquire the secret of an ancient Japanese art of Kusudama. Kusudama means «therapeutic ball». A long time ago herbs were put into such a ball and hanged over a patient`s bed for healing or over a baby`s bed to protect him from deseases and misfortune.
At first glance Kusudama is like origami, but there`s significant difference between them. Creating a Kusudama craft it`s allowed to glue and cut paper what is forbidden in origami technique. This master class will help you to make a color miracle, an original gift in Kusudama art on Mother`s Day which will nicely decorate your mom`s room and serve as a talisman for good luck.
