5. I promised a while back to show you my little technique for making leaves from scrap paper:
- Gather several circle punches , some scrap green paper and cardstock, and a Scor-It.
- Fold the paper in half, with a nice sharp crease. A Scor-It works really well for doing this! If you're using scraps like I did, create creases in the paper about every 1/2″ to 3/4″ across the whole width of the paper.
- Fold each crease and punch until you're left with a swiss cheese piece of paper–you'll get the most bang for your buck this way;)
- Using a circle punch punch partial circles along the creased edge of the paper. You’ll want to have the paper only about ¼ of the way into the punch.
- The closer you get to having the paper halfway in the more likely you will have a circle when you unfold the punched paper.
- For larger leaves use a larger diameter punch and for smaller leaves use a small diameter punch.
- Here I really used a “Scrap” of paper–you can get the most out of scraps you'd otherwise throw away by punching things out of them.
- You can also try scalloped, pinked, or other decorative edged circle punches to make more interesting leaves.
- Try punching colored paper to make flower petals!
- When you're done, you can use the leaves right away or save them for a future project.
