It seems I can’t open a note book without finding some pressed leaves or petals nestled between the pages.
Whenever I leave the house I tuck a notebook in my bag, just in case I find the perfect leaf, I then tuck it way and forget all about it for a while, until they flutter to the floor.
Realising I should probably do something with these leaves I decided to make a simple display of some of my favourites, the warm tones add a lovely touch to these gloomy days of autumn.
You will need:
Assortment of dried leaves and petals
Glue dots or double sided foam pads
Step one: From your selection of dried leaves and petals, pick your favourites.
Step two: Play around with placement on to the card stock until you are happy with how it looks.
Step three: Adhere glue dots / foam pads to the reverse side of the leaf, use more dots/pads for larger leaves, place the leaf firmly yet gently to the card stock. Repeat for each leaf and petal until they are all securely attached to the card.
~ Using foam pads/glue dots allows the leaves to retain a lovely 3D effect ~
Then you just need to pop it on a wall.
I love the simple pops of colour it adds to the rather grey and miserable days we’ve been having lately.
