This is a lovely Kusudama design by Mancini from Italy. It got the rank "Intermediate" probably because of the great number of units to be used. What is just needed here is patience and eagerness to finish the model, since the units are very easy to create.
Unlike many Kusudamas I have attempted to fold, this one has a very good lock mechanism that does not need glue for the units to hold each other together.
There is also a similar model (also designed by Mancini) that looks very similar with this Kusudama. The Star Dodecahedron has thinner units and looks more like a wireframe. The video tutorial can be found here.

P.S. It is so good to be back! I know that this post, this post I wrote on April 28, 2015, is the very first blog post I have done for this year. The last few school weeks have been hectic, but I have finally graduated high school in March! In April, some weeks were also hectic due to some exhibits and issues with Heritage Conservation in my country (an unrelated topic. I might write it in Ligaya sa Lakbay). A few minutes earlier I was reading my earlier blog posts and I am honest to say I vomited on how corny my earlier posts are... Anyways, I will try to make up for lost time. It is good to be back. :)
