I make custom ornaments and I was given a map to make into a custom ornament for a client a little while ago. It turned out so awesome and it turned her London map into a really great souvenir she can display. Then a few weeks ago I managed to get my hands on a box full of old maps. I found the North Carolina map and since this is my home I decided to go with North Carolina for my first map ornament. I have other U.S. state maps so if you are looking for another state just ask and I can make one in whichever state you want (as long as I have that state in stock or can get my hands on it).
Kusudama ball ornaments are made by folding a single sheet of origami paper into a "petal" for the five petal flower. Once five petals are folded they are combined with glue form the flower. 12 flowers (60 petals) are needed to make the kusudama ball ornament.
This beautiful kusudama ball was made with a North Carolina road map. I can do specific states on request! I have lots of old maps of states and cities. Just ask and if I don't have the specific state or city I will try to get it.
This map ornament is approx. 4 inches in diameter. Approximate ribbon length is 3 inches.
This paper flower ornament would be a beautiful ornament, room decoration, Christmas tree ornament, decorative fan pull, window decoration or wedding decoration.
This paper map ornament and all items in my shop are made in a smoke free home and studio.
***There will be some variation in the paper and paper placement used on each ball because the pieces are handmade and placed, so please expect some variation from the picture.****

Yes, I can customize pretty much anything in my shop. I can make custom color schemes for any mobile, ornament, boutonniere or bouquet. I can also customize frames, gift sets and mirrors.
All origami items are made with paper and can not be cleaned with any cleaner or damp cloths. I recommend dusting with a feather duster or Swiffer type duster at least once a month. I also recommend using canned air to clean dust out from inside the folds of the origami pieces. Frames and mirrors may be cleaned using a damp cloth.
If your item is a gift I am happy to add a gift note (on a handmade card) along with an invoice with no prices on it. Please just leave a note for me at purchase. Some items can be gift wrapped (ornaments, frames and mirrors). There is an extra charge for gift wrapping and can be purchased at checkout.
Please note I am happy to make custom orders but they either need to be paid for or have a deposit put down before I start work. Each custom piece is unique and handmade, so they can not be resold if buyers back out before payment. I will send paper samples for approval to make sure orders are what you want.
