Making Kusudama flowers from origami paper with a Tec 305 Glue Gun

Meet the Boulds who make Kusudama flowers from origami paper and have been using double sided tape to keep them together but not too successfully.

They saw an advert for a glue gun + glue sticks that could glue anything and thought they would give it a try. They applied for one of the free guns and glue sticks and were successful. It arrived the next day and they couldn’t wait to open it and put it through its paces.

Below are a few words and photos of how the flowers are made and the use of the glue gun which is a TEC 305.

The flower is made up using 5 sheets of paper and folded into petals and then glued together to make the completed flower the above picture shows the paper and the glue gun at the ready
