I finally mentally prepaired myself (had a eureka moment and figured out how) to make a cherry blossom papercraft I promised a good friend far too long ago. The branches and petals were all drawn up in Mypaint, and then I converted everything to paths for my cutter in Inkscape. I added a lattice structure to hold the petals in place after the initial cutting. Once they had been glued to the branches, I cut it away. Over all, I was very happy with the results and have a feeling I’ll probably have to make a few more once people see it.
Here are some process photos:
