It’s spring!

Small Bites of Fun From Emily~

Leaf Printing:

Gather some eye-catching leaves on your next trip outdoors, whether it’s to walk the dog or hike a mountain.  Leaf printing is a craft technique that transfers leaves’ natural color to fabric or paper.

Arrange the leaves over the fabric or paper in the desired pattern. Place a sheet of tracing paper over the leaves, then hammer the entire surface to release the natural dyes in the leaves.

Enjoy this technique on your greeting cards and fabric.  Also, don’t forget to press those pretty flowers that will start coming out soon!
