Tutorial: Paper Leaf
I've created this tutorial to explain how I make my leaves from copy paper or packing paper. You will not need any special supplies to make these leaves! They are very realistic and a wonderful addition to paper flowers and plants. I love making them on their own, too. This is a downloadable .pdf file that takes you through each step of creating a red oak leaf with text and photographs. I include some additional information like making multiple leaves at once, making compound leaves, and my tips and tricks. The file will be sent to your inbox after payment.
Here are the supplies you will need:
Plain copy paper or packing paper.
Thin gauge wire
Crepe paper strip to coat the wire
Felt or foam sheet
A scoring tool (like a toothpick or a butterknife)
