Tutorial: Crimped Leaves
I had someone ask how I make crimped leaves, so I made a little picture tutorial for you.
Start with a piece of cardstock and fold or score it lengthwise down the center.
Fold it in half and run the folded corner through the paper crimper at a diagonal angle as shown.
Slide the folded edge into your oval punch at an angle and punch. I use both the large and small oval punches for various sized leaves. You can also cut the leaves out with scissors, just cutting a half-oval on the folded side. Here is a picture to show the difference between the punched and hand-cut leaves.
Here is the final result. Beautiful card and gorgeous leaves, Carol!
You can also make leaves from designer paper too, so let your creativity run wild and make some flowers and leaves! Enjoy!
