I recently figured out a lamp design for the Kusudama. Flower balls are quite popular in the origami world; however, few of them can actually be used for lamp, probably because its solid structure could not accommodate a globe. For this reason, I thought about casting the light underneath the flower, such that it can glow like a lamp.
With the traditional origami method, this is difficult to achieve, as the petals have 2 layers of paper and the middle of the flower is quite dense. This hinders the light to pass through. As such, I have designed a template, which allows the project to work.
You will need the following things for this project.
Card (150 gsm, smooth texture) x 10
Craft or hot glue
Small paper cup (7.5 cm wide, 9.5 cm high)
Light requirement - starry string LED light set
The template for making the flower: https://goo.gl/hy2bNR
