Hey guys!
I've decided that I'm going to scrapbook my 1 month trip to Japan. I've gone through all my things and I have everything in order. I have LOTS of good ideas for my scrapbook.... I would REALLY LOVE LOVE LOVE to make a Paper Cherry Blossom Tree to take up one of the pages. The only thing is.. is that my drawing skills are definitely lacking. Any ideas as to how to create this or trace it from somewhere?? I also need the cherry blossoms too. I have cute pink paper, but I just don't know where to begin... I love this idea and I think it'll turn out really cute.

Also, a friend of mine has a paper punch in the shape of the "Good Luck" character in Japanese. Now it doesn't have to say good luck, but I've searched the internet for the last hour and a half and I've had no luck. I came across one in amazon, that means "I Love You" but it said the item was unavailable. Any suggestions as to where I can get something like this? Even die cuts would be okay!!! Let me know! Thanks for your input!~

I took a trip to Japan a few years ago! <3

I'd use tissue paper in brown twisted up and glued onto the page for the cherry blossom trunk and branches, then little wadded up circles of pink tissue paper for all the blossoms.



For Japanese characters, they are pretty easy to draw, actually. I think those stamps are a total waste of money unless you plan on doing the same character a million times. Or try going to half price books and finding a Japanese magazine or book and cutting out some of the kanji on there. Or even a Japanese picture book from amazon or something.
