Kusadama Christmas Tree

Origami Christmas Tree
this is my own original design.  I have not seen the tree made with the flowers yet.  I have also made a Kusadama Ball as posted in a previous post.  To make the Tree you must make 15 flowers each with separately made petals.  Once 5 petals each made with squares are assembled and glued together you have one flower. To make each layer you need 5 flowers joined together to make a ring. 
The bottom layer is made with 4x4 inch squares so you need 25 pieces of 4x4 for the bottom layer.
The next layer is made from 3x3 and the top layer made with 2x2 inch squares.   This project is time consuming but I like the results in the long run.  I used the boho blossom punch from Stampin' UP!
to cover the hole in the center and added one of the shiny Rhinestone brads to the center to bling it up a bit.  The Angel is a Christmas Ornament that I also added the SU Rhinestones to.  I used a clay pot underneath and Put a clothespin in the center of some Floral Foam to hold the tree in place.  Visit my website if you would like to purchase some SU products.
