Cherry Craft Tutorial
Start by laying your branches on your blue paper. Break off any extras off the side.
Next, glue the branches on to your blue cardstock paper.
While that is drying, cut out long strips of green paper. They will need to be about 1/8″ thick. This will be your cherry stems.
With that same sheet of green cardstock paper, trace out small leaves. These don’t have to be perfect and they don’t have to be all the same size.
After that, cut thicker strips of red paper and then cut them again into 3 inch smaller strips.
Next, you are going to dab a small amount of glue on the end of your 3″ red strips. These will become your cherries.
Once your cherries have dried, glue on your cherry stems.
Finally, wrap them around your tree branches, glue your cherries in place and then glue the leaves on it.
This is what it will look like completed. How cute are these!
