Paper Cherry Blossom's

Spring is right around the corner. Despite a high in the low 40's today, I can feel it in my bones! And with Spring around the corner, that means it's time to lighten things up a bit and get in a more colorful mood. I stumbled upon this simple craft that I LOVE, and would look great as a simple decor in a guest room, on the kitchen table, or even make a fabulous shower decoration.

You Will Need
*Thin Pink paper
*Bare branches
*Vase or frame


1) If you are not using origami paper, cut your paper into squares. For a better looks, use two different sizes of squares, 3 in. and 2.5 in.

2) Cut your branches to a size that will suit the frame or vase that you are using.

3) Fold your squares into cherry blossoms. You can find out how to fold them here (http://www.origami-club.com/en/flowers/sakura2/index.html). You can create slight variations in the flowers by the you cut them.

4) After you have arranged your branches in a vase or frame, attach the folded cherry blossoms to the branches using tape.
