How To Make Paper Leaves

Paper leaves are easy to make.

All you need is:
  • paper
  • ruffled edge scissors
  • glitter gel pens
  • ink
First, cut out leaf-like shapes from a nice paper with the decorated edge scissors.

Lightly touch the leaf with ink to give it more depth, then draw the veins with a gel pen in a contrasting color.

You can glue the leaf to a flower, or wire it and wrap it in floral tape.

And, voila - - -  a paper leaf, ready to complement a paper flower (in this case, a bookmark paper flower).
