These gorgeous Cherry Blossoms were made by my 11 year old daughter, Katie, with punches, craft wire and floral tape!!
Now, we sell the punches in our store!!
Here's an awesome little tutorial that Katie put together...
Simply punch out the shapes you need...
2 - #2 Medium Blossom
1 - #4 Large Water Splatt
1 - #1 Small Sunflower
2 - Mini Suns
Use the Stylus Tool and... rub the center of the flower in a circular motion to "cup" the flower.

Side view of all the "cupped" petals.
Katie painted all of the petals with Shimmerz Paintz.
Katie is molding the flowers on the back side of each petal.
Layer all 3 of the petals.
Katie split each of the sunflower petals with scissors.
Then she painted the tips with Shimmerz "Burgundy".
To make the bendable branch, you will need the following items...
Paper-Covered Craft Wire
Brown Floral Tape
Bend the Craft Wire to the desired length
Cut the Craft Wire with Wire Cutters.
Bend the smaller piece of wire around the main branch.
Wrap the Brown Floral Tape around the branches.
We recommend putting a small amount at each tip first.
Dad helped... "thanks Dad"!!!
Assemble the remaining flower pieces.
Press down on the center of each flower with a small stylus tool to "pop" the stamen up.
Arrange your Cherry Blossoms on the Branches.
Apply glue and attach your petals to the branches.
Katie made these beautiful blossoms to give away in a flower swap... I am soooo very proud of her!!
She's going to start selling her handmade flowers and cards on our website.
