Stamping 101: Making Leaves using a Paper Crimper

Project Supplies:

1.) Paper Crimper

2.) Paper Trimmer with Scoring Blade

3.) Cardstock (Garden Green shown in example)

4) Scissors

How to create leaves:
Score down the middle of your card stock. Fold card stock in half.

Keeping the folded side on your left, begin cutting a crescent moon shape starting with the point at the bottom and moving up to the point in the center touching the fold. Experiment until you get the shape you like! The scissors I am using in this photo are the Craft and Rubber scissors.

With the leaf still folded, run it through the paper crimper.
Unfold your leaf! That's all there is to it.
Tip: You can run multiple leaves through the paper crimper at the same time, just be sure that none of the leaves are touching each other.

UPDATE 9-19-09!!! I came up with another (better) way to make the leaves. Run them through the crimper at an angle. See photos below. Contact me if you have any questions!!
