Tsumami Kanzashi Tutorial

I made a simple step-by-step tutorial for those of you who would like to make your own tsumami kanzashi, which are traditional Japanese flowers folded out of fabric, usually silk. This tutorial will show you how to make the two main petal shapes: round and pointed, as well as how to do falls of petals, the bases, and a basic "bouquet" arrangement. Click on the link below to view and download the tutorial. I hope this helps you and gives you a creative boost:
