Cutting Leaves

For almost two days last week, I didn't craft because my right hand index finger was injured. It was painful to hold a craft knife so I just resorted to thinking of other things to cut - those that didn't need as much effort or pressure as paper. Good thing I kind of collected dried leaves when we went to Zambales for the Craft Camp last month.

Cutting Leaves

They're big enough and don't crumble easily. I am still trying to experiment on different ways of preparing and preserving leaves. Any recommendations?

  3. Ugh you're so talented talaga! I've been trying to re-focus my attention to papercutting pero it's so difficult. I don't know which parts to cut or what! XD I definitely need to join one of your workshops (T-T)

    Re: Preserving leaves. You can try spraying them with hairspray or Acrylic Sealer (they have diff types at Deovir) I heard Modpodge also works. You can choose if you want them matte or shiny :)
