Select some dried leaves and laminate them, you’re Minc can do this and if you don’t have one you can use the stores. Trim to fit inside a frame you make from decorative paper. You will cut out a square to fit your leaf and also cut a piece of paper to use as a backing. Double sided designer paper makes this easy to do – simply flip the paper and use both sides. Use a corner rounder and ink all edges. Glue the leaf in place and then add the backing. Voila! Smaller versions can be used in project life pages or on layouts. Super creative idea to use in card making.
