I love kanzashi - USA kusudama

I really do love making kanzashi so I am going to show one off every other day.

Here is the first one which I based on the USA flag.

USA kusudama

I was inspired to make this because of my lovely American friend!  I also make a Union Jack one as well for her but that is another post.

Even though the design turned out just like I imagine, I was still amazed how it looks.  Even with spiralling nature of the design, you can still see the USA flag design perfectly well and the shiny diamant√© provide the perfect stars on the flag.

I did actually think about putting on 50 stars but then it dawned on me that this would be impossible so I just put enough on to give the impression of the stars on the flag.
