If you're a beginner to origami, the perfect way to start off is by making this simple origami flower. It's easy and really not hard to understand and follow the instructions. Once you've made at least one Kusudama flower, you'll probably have memorised the technique and folds. The best thing about this simple origami flower is the design. Pretty things tend to be more liked and as shown in the picture you can create and sell a bouquet or two for weddings, baby showers, and birthday gifts. Even though some people may not consider this as 'true origami,' due to the use of glue or tape, it's still very exciting and fun to make.
Below is a tutorial video on how to make this simple origami flower. Personally, I find that watching tutorial videos is much easier than trying to figure the instructions from paper on your own. I suggest watching the video first, pay careful attention to the folds, try it out on a normal piece of paper and remember that if you get stuck and fall behind, there's always the pause button!
