Mina Kusudama

While folding the origami Mina from my previous post, I realised that it resembled Mio Tsugawa’s Arabesque. Except of course, that for the arabesque the flaps are curled to give that rounded, softer look and we do not do that for the mina. That does not mean we cannot add those curls So that is what I did.
