    You can follow this clip on my Youtube channel: The Japanese Kusudama, as known as medicine ball, is a paper ball that is usually created by sewing multiple identical pyramidal units together through their points to form a spherical shape with many petals.

    The meaning of Kusudama is just like its name (The word itself is a combination of two Japanese words: “kusuri” means Medicine, and “tama” means Ball).

    This ball is considered as a medicine to pray for some one to quickly recover as well as to wish the family members good health.

    Nowadays, Kusudama is typically known only as a gift or a decoration.Please follow the kusudama flower origami below (this guide is so easy!) Notice: in this origami instruction video, we have subtitles in English (US), Español, Francés, Deutsch, العربية, Português.
