One More For Girl'sDay

Ever since I made Kimono Maddy with a dangling crystal flower a couple of posts ago, I thought it would make a cute ornament. Since it's almost Girl's Day, I decided to hang some "ornaments" on a cherry blossom branch. Of course, we don't have cherry blossoms here in, here's a close-up of what I came up with:

I just cut a few wires to make the branches and wrapped them with florist tape (adding in a few blossoms here and there). For the blossoms, I used some paper flowers (shown below). I scrunched the flowers up to make them look more like cherry blossoms...and I cut some green flowers to make the leaves.

Stamps used: #B140 (Kimono Maddy) and #4011 (Sakura). Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

very cute idea Jean! However we do have cherry blossoms, if you go to Wahiawa, there are cherry blossoms along California Avenue. Go have a look if you have time!
