It has been quite a while since I folded modular origami and even longer since I folded any of Tomoko Fuse’s amazing creations. This modular kusudama is the Butterfly Kusudama (Type III) and is from the book ‘Floral Origami Globes‘.
The model is made from 30 units and each unit is made from 2 rectangles. The fan-like section is folded into a base section to form 1 unit. I have glued the two parts of the fan, but as per the instructions, they are left as-is to represent the 2 wings of the butterfly.
