TUES TIP: MAKING LEAVES

I was on the Tuesday Tip over on the Kaisercraft blog this week so I thought I would share my tips for making some cute leaves:
I just love using flowers on my projects, so it goes without saying that I always need leaves!

Here is a simple way to make leaves:

First I have used a 1.5” square punch to cut some squares. As a tip I have evenly cut my squares so I can use the remaining cut paper later.
Fold the squares like shown:
Place the folded squares into a 2” circle punch like shown to shape into leaves.
Make creases into the leaves as shown – I have marked where they should be with pen.
Turn the leaves over and ink with brown ink to highlight the creases and the edges.
Use the paper which you cut the squares from and lay this onto a card to create another layer.
Layer your leaves and flowers onto the card as desired.
The end result!”
