Kanzashi Heart Wreath

I decided to make this Kanzashi Heart Wreath because I love the art of folding. The Kanzashi term- in the English-speaking world, refers to the folded-fabric-petal flower that traditionally adorned the Tsumami Kanzashi (folded hair ornament). These are created by Japanese artisans from tiny squares of silk, usually 1"- 4". It is folded into petals using origami techniques.
