Leaf silhouettes

Use real leaves to create dramatic silhouettes for notebook covers, storage tins etc. Press leaves on to sticky-backed plastic (the sort you use to cover books). Spray paint on the sticky side of the plastic, leave to dry then remove the leaves. You can use wrapping paper or old wallpaper as a backing - simply glue the sticky-backed plastic onto this backing. Dramatic effects ahoy!

From The Family Circle Book of Crafts, 1980.
