    VideoInstruction by Leyla Torres
Paper: 5*5 Inch one side coloured origami paper

IvaMia kusuduma is designed by Andrey Hechuev.The kusuduma has only 6 units.As I was searching for an easy design which would need less units,fast and easy so that I can make some ornaments for the Christmas tree really fast this fitted in very well and Leyla Torres instruction video was really useful ( Thanks a lot to her ).

This basically uses windmill base.Of the two, folding and assembly sections in kusuduma here folding of the units is easier than the assembly.

The units with face up

Units with face down.
The units can be assembled without glue but are bit tricky so a few clips are required while you assemble.
Assembling the kusuduma.

I used a few my daughters hair clips as I ran out of paper clips and the clothespin were too heavy for my units:P.
