Kanzashi goes mainstream – well sort of.


Check this out. The October 2009 edition of ‘Women’s Day’ magazine published a short ‘how-to’ about Kanzashi! Here’s to hoping the article sparks some new interest! Below is the scan of the article from the magazine.

  1. That cut out and keep tutorial is the best basic one I’ve ever seen – and I’ve done a lot of searching. Awesome find!

    Do you know if that Woman’s Day article has another page or more specific details on the actual petal folding? I haven’t checked out the video yet, so maybe that’s where it is.

    • I really liked the link I posted – and made a few flowers from it. I have found other guides, and they are very intimidating and talk about alot of expensive supplies.

      The flower I made…all I required was a button, fabric, scissors, needle, and thread! Later I’m going to add pinbacks to the flowers to make them pin-on broaches 🙂

      Oh, and that is the ENTIRE magazine snip-it. It was around 1/3 a page, very small.
