origami diagrams featured in paper unlimited

In here you will find diagrams of some of the models I rumble about in the blog/ site.

:PDF/ image samples:
These are only for publicity and are already available on the web but you can also find them here for commodity.
These two are available at the amazon.co.jp but since many people don’t adventure that way…
: Unit Origami Polyhedron, FUSE Tomoko » sample pages (pdf)
The book is really great and in this sample you can see the photos of the models as well as a cube diagram with two variants.
Be aware that this book in english edition is named Unit Origami Polyhedron and has nothing to do with the other book by Fuse named Unit Origami.
You can also check it (and buy it!) at amazon.co.jp.

: Flower Globe, FUSE Tomoko » sample pages (pdf)
This one also has great photos and diagrams of the models; in these sample pages we get to know two menko units (sonobe units) to make cubes and other polyhedra. It definitively works you up to buy the real thing. :)
You can check it (and buy it!) at amazon.co.jp.

I know I got these from a web site but from where? Not the one that the pages show, that’s for sure. So since I can’t remember here they are.
FUSE Tomoko box diagram (at modular origami: box i)
: A nice four sided box available in 3 pages: page 1, page 2 and page 3

:Step by step “diagrams”:
Some diagrams folded and, of course, photoshoped into these step by step instructions by me. Hope you like it :)
: Kusudama Lilian: page 1, page 2, page 3 and a unit variation. (at a little gift…, featured in kusudama: lilian and once upon a time there was a kusudama named lilian)

: Modular Rings: page 1 and page 2. (featured in modular origami: rings by Mette Pederson)

Until I (manually) update this list please, feel free to use the tag diagrams! All posts with diagrams are tagged with it! Happy folding!

    There is a video for how to make the cherry blossom kusudama by Tomoko Fuse on youtube, if you search “cherry blossom ball Tomoko Fuse”, it is the first (video) result.

  15. sakuralover Says:

  16. MissKLC Says:

    Hi, I also am reallly interested in that diagram for the cherry blossoms, I’ve been wanting to decorate my room with cherry blossoms and your origami ones are the best I’ve seen.
    Thank you,
    Kelsey (kelskels@gmail.com)

  17. Carole Says:

    Hi, can you help??? I’m getting desperate.
    I’ve tried to fold the “Covered Bows” from Tomoko Fuse’s book Floral Origami Globes and the folding has gone fine … but I’m having trouble with the Face on the Base. I can’t get the Face triangle on top of the base for the vertical joins (horizontal is fine). I’ve been trying for days and just can’t get it.

  18. Nat Says:

    Hi there,

    I’ve just started creating origami and love it.
    Its challenging but yet rewarding. The creations are beautiful.

    Do you have any instructions on how to create a cherry blossum or lotus flower?

    Your creations are perfect!


  19. Paper Kawaii Says:

    You can find a cherry blossom kasudama diagram on my website, it is the same as the one used here!


    I really want to try this asap, but it looks pretty full on!


  20. Eriko Says:

    I’ve never heard about kusudama until recently! :-( I used to love origami when I was a child. I’d like to buy a couple of books for a nephew who loves making kusudame since at early age… which would you recommend the most? I know there are many out there but seems you’ve read plenty of them, so, can you please recommend some?

    Thanks in advance!!

  21. Marie Says:


    I’ve been looking for the Kawahata “Baby Elephant” for a long time. I noticed you have a picture of a nicely folded one, do you know where I could get the diagrams? The book it is in seems to be out of print.

    Thanks so much!
