Cherry Blossom Beauty

March 27th will be the anniversary of the day Japan gifted us with 3,020 Sakura Cherry Blossom Trees and I have seen them popping up all over in the blogger world. All these Cherry Blossom projects have had me thinking of my beautiful high school campus. I used to love this time of year when the trees where in bloom and the campus was covered in a sea of pink petals! Unfortunately the higher ups took the liberty of cutting down most of the trees on campus to make room for more parking and what not. I think the trees will be greatly missed, at least by me.

This is where I went to high school! How lucky was I?

When Maddie and I went for a walk to the playground today she found the perfect branch to make a Cherry Blossom tree with. So of course when we got home I broke out the glue and we got busy!

Materials: the perfect branch, blue cardstock, glue, white/light pink/dark pink tissue paper
I cut up all the tissue paper and Maddie crumbled it up into tiny balls.


I poured a little glue on a piece of scrap paper and let Maddie take care of the rest.


She did such a great job!
