Kusudama (literally translated as medicine ball) a type of origami which was the precursor to modular origami. The folded forms are typically assembled together using glue or sewing. Here is a basic Japanese paper flower jewelry tutorial by boddhi15 over on Instructables. The instructor is working on a wedding party jewelry set.
The technique yields petals of different sizes from each folding. Several of the same size are glued together to form a single flower. The instructor used nail polish to seal the paper jewelry. I wonder how the flower would look if one used dimensional sealer?
Flowers can also be attached to each other to form a ball.
Here are a couple of examples from other artisans.
