Kanzashi tsumami is the Japanese art of folding delicate squares of silk into three-dimensional flower petals. In the United States, the online craft culture has sprouted a renewed interest in making Kanzashi with American crafters devising simplified ways to create these gorgeous fabric flowers and incorporating more user-friendly materials like cotton and synthetic fabrics along with the traditional silks.

Kanzashi in Bloom takes the American interpretation of Kanzashi a step further, presenting modern, more easily executed flower designs as elements in a variety of fun, fashionable, hip craft projects. Kanzashi in Bloom offers advice on materials, three petal-folding styles, and techniques for assembling a Kanzashi flower. You'll also find instructions for 20 projects to wear and give as gifts, including:

• Tiny blossom earrings
• Flowers-in-your-hair clips
• The happiest belt buckle ever
• Elegant floral gift topper

  • Hair Jewelry decoration

    Our Sakura Dance troupe learned to create hair decorations to wear when dancing in kimono using this book. Silk and obi textiles create lovely hair jewelry. This techniqe is an extension of origami, using fabric foldling. DVDs on Japanese culture with subtitles especially see the Special Features: Departures, Shogun (5 Disc TV series), Last Samurai, Memoirs of Geisha. Chinese DVDs with hair jewelry: Raise the Red Lantern, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, House of Flying Daggers. Highly recommended if you enjoy learning how to make your own decorations

  • Kanzashi fun!

    I actually just started getting into Kanzashi and was at first looking for Japanese books. To my dismay, there is no such thing, as it is difficult to find such books here in the US. I first brought the book from *** to take a look inside of it, and I fell in love with it..
