Washington Cherry Tree



I know I am a day late on Washington's Birthday (trust me my daughter reminded me several times that I needed to post this on the 22nd NOT the 23rd.)  This was a fun, easy project that takes 30 minutes and is a great children's project!

Materials:
Tree Template
Cereal Box
The Robin's Nest Stencil Green Paper on Linen Card Stock
The Robin's Nest Brown Zebra Stripe
Red Dew Drops
Light Green Tear Drops
3D Crystal Lacquer
Scissors
Meadow Green Bic® Mark-it™
Woodsy Brown Bic® Mark-it™


Trace Template (mine came from the book:  "The Craft Book for Children: Sticks & Stones & Ice Cream Cones")

Trace the tree onto the cereal box.  Two trees will be needed in order for the tree to the stand.

Cut out the trees

Test to see if the tree stands.

Trace the trees onto the paper (you will need four bushes and four trunks).  Glue the paper onto the cereal boxes, add ink onto edges to hide the cardboard.

Add Dew Drops to look like cherries.




The project was extremely easy and fun.  My daughter made her own version on President's Day without Robin's Nest Papers and Dew Drops (I'm a big meanie, I know!)
