We are so excited to add another new cardstock project to our collection of paper flowers! Designed by Meagan, this paper apple blossom branch is part of our spring craft summit to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. And we think it’s going to look so beautiful in your home this spring.
Just scroll down to see our supplies list, then download our template and tutorial at the end of the post. There’s also a live workshop you can watch below.
It’s always so delightful to see trees in bloom — from dogwoods to cherry blossoms and more. But sadly these spring blooms don’t last forever, which is why we’ve made many of our own blooming branches over the years. Our paper apple blossom branch will never wilt, and you can enjoy it in your home or office all year long.
Skill level: Advanced due to the small pieces and lots of extra added details to make it look as real as possible
Crafting tip: We used a real branch from a dogwood tree that is about 12-18″ in length.

Q: How many branches for the floral arranging class should we prepare? This is beautiful! I had my doubts about card stock but I have been won over!
I would prep three. 🙂
The Apple blossoms are gorgeous!!!
Is the blending brush alcohol based?
Thanks for this beautiful project!
No, it is water-based, the same brand as the Karin marker. However, if you use an alcohol marker, you will want an alcohol-based blender.
Hey Pam – I always love Lia’s vases and pots! I’ve found the easiest way to find something similar is to right click on the picture and use the “search image with google” option to look for similar containers online. The best fit I found for these were “Constellation Pierced Ceramic Candleholders” from West Elm but you’ll find tons of similar style items if you try that type of picture search.
I missed the live class (work and all that) but I’m looking forward to watching this video back and making my own apple blossom branch!
Great tip, Amie! Enjoy the class. 🙂
I love your pots. They might be a little leaky for fresh flowers, but lovely anyway. 🙂 They would make an interesting pattern in the room if fairy lights were put inside. Maybe the flowers could be inserted in a small container and wrapped with the fairy lights and then put in the pots. Where did you find them?
The paper pots are made for paper plants. 😉 Hanging them with fairy lights is a cute idea. I am not sure what you are asking about where we found them. What is “them”?
Can I use frosted paper for this?
Yes, you can!
