Cardboard Sakura Pavement Stencils

Cherry blossom petals are on the streets everywhere! Tokyo looks like it’s been covered in fairy dust.

I was inspired by this post at Oh Happy Day about creating lawn “heart” stencils with flour.

We tried cherry blossom petals, cardboard and flower shapes, experimenting with both the stencil and the negative of the stencil. It was a beautiful day and Electra and Isis both absolutely loved collecting up the petals and scattering them onto the stencils. The best part was seeing the smiles on the obachans (grandmothers), who were out for a walk.

A great way to enjoy sakura, sunshine, and giggling little girls.
