Clumsyplush - Home of Cute Kawaii Plush Toys and Cute Kawaii Accessories Vector Graphics Blog | Free Graphic Design Resources Kusudama Tutorial part 1 The Japanese kusudama is a paper ball made out of multiple identical origami shapes glued together. They were traditionally used as a ball for incense or potpourri but now we see them more for decoration or as a gift. Today I am showing you part 1 on how to make the Japanese traditional shape. There are many different patterns to make a kusudama ball but I find this the easiest pattern to get started. What you need for this tutorial is: 60 pieces of paper cut into squares. Below I will show you how to make the basic shape, you need to make 60 of these. Fold the bottom corner to the top. Fold the left and right corners up to the middle corner. Fold the same points down. Open up the flaps you have just created and flatten them. Fold the top triangles towards you so they are level with the edges of the paper. Fold the triangles back using the crease you made earlier and glue the outside triangles together. Now make 5 more of these petals and glue them all together.

Super Cute Kawaii!! Shadow Files: The Basics | One Little Bird Designs | Blog As of May 2011 I finalized a self-paced project in cooperation with Big Picture Classes and The Daily Digi called “Me and My Shadow” which takes the basic techniques that I outline here to the next level – the next stratosphere, really! It’s this tutorial on steroids.This partnership gave me the opportunity to provide video demonstrations using a wide variety of elements as I build a page from the ground up, and it also includes printable reference guides. My blog tutorial here will continue to be offered free of charge, in perpetuity (that means forever!) – so don’t worry! The online course is the next step for those of you who really want to go “down the rabbit hole” with me and become a total geek for Drop Shadows. This is a post I’ve been working on for a while. I do have some jumping off points, though, and I’ll gladly share them (for free!) I’m no rocket scientist. I’m going to start with this sad little unshadowed flower on a piece of light kraft paper.

Make a DIY Bent Plywood Bicycle » Man Made DIY « Keywords: wood, bike, bent, bicycle Boy, do I love me some molded plywood. It gives my Eames lounge-ish chair its perfect shape, and is quite functional in my walnut magazine end table and this laptop riser I hacked from an IKEA stool. And, as some industrious design students figured out, you can create a bike frame at home by learning to laminate and mold your own plywood elements. Brilliant! Even if you're not digging on building a bike frame, this is a great tutorial for learning how to mold and bend plywood. After seeing this bike on a bicycle design blog I was inspired to build my own. Also I had some left over epoxy and fiberglass from a kayak I built and was just itching to find a project I could use it on (or maybe I was just itchy from all the fiberglass). The part of the design I liked was that the top and bottom parts of the frame are like leaf springs separated by the seat tube. Bent Plywood Bicycle [Instructables]
