Fall Craft Challenge: Leaf Print Stationery

A little while ago, (okay, quite a long time ago…) Karel from Living Towards Love and I decided that we were going to do a Fall Craft Challenge.  We’ve both finally found the time to put together our little projects and share them with you.  Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s how to:

What you need:

  • Acrylic paint in fall colours
  • Card (or something else to print on)
  • Baking parchment
  • A selection of leaves

Step 1:  Spread the paint onto the underside of the leaf (as it has more texture).

Step 2:  Place leaf paint side down onto the card.

Step 3:  Place baking parchment over the leaf and smooth over with your fingers.

Step 4:  Remove baking parchment and gently peel off leaf.

This stationery was so much fun to make and playing around with paint and leaves made me feel like a little kid again.

Keep an eye out for more of our seasonal craft challenges and check out Karel’s post here.
