With autumn coming, the leaves fall it's the time to harvest and dry them. You can use them for your scrapbooking and other compositions or only used a part of the leaf.
In this article we endow some scrapbooking punches to cut shapes in our leaves.
For this you need :
- Leaves not fully dry, the better it's to pick up the one on the tree, and leave them a day or two to dry, flat between two sheets of newspaper. If they are too dry they will break when you punched them.
- Take your scrapbooking punches and punch the leaves. Collect the cut shapes, place them between two sheets of newspaper flat and place a weight on top. Wait until they dry completely.
Vary the textures and colors by collecting different species of trees or shrubs leaves.
Here a tuto using this technic.
