I made this bag for a dear friend. She carries one of my purses from last year and shows it off to everyone. It was time for a new model and I came up with cherry blossoms. I took ribbon in different sizes and shades of brown and twisted them together to create the branch. I used silk for the flowers and stitched glass beads inside for the centers. The handle and flowers are fabulous pink silk that I got from Yellow Bird Fabrics.
