Capture a breath of spring with these gorgeous origami cherry blossoms. Although the blossoms themselves are folded paper, the stems on which they are attached are curly willow.
To make them, you'll need the following:
- Origami paper--trimmed down to 1.5" squares--that is the same color on both sides. (Lokta paper was used in this tutorial.) The maker suggests starting out with 3" squares, just until you get the hang of the folding technique.
- A bit of yellow or orange crepe paper, for the flowers' centers.
- Curly willow branches.
- Scotch Quick-Dry Tacky Adhesive.
To see the entire process--including individual folds, of course--visit The Flirty Guide.
