Paper Blossoms

I am loving the blossom filled trees right now!  I saw these paper blossoms and thought they might extend spring a little longer.  Enjoy!

What You’ll Need:
  • Pink paper (thin paper will be easier to fold)
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Bare branches
  • Vase or frame
Step One:
If you are not using origami paper, cut your paper into squares. I used two different sizes of squares, 3 in. and 2.5 in.
Step Two:
Cut your branches to a size that will suit the frame or vase that your will be using.
Step Three:
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.
Step Four:
After you have arranged your branches in a vase or frame, attach the folded cherry blossoms to the branches using tape. I happened to have a pink masking tape that matched my paper, but clear tape would also work.
