Simple Leaf Pick Tutorial…

Aug 24, 2009

Here is a super sim­ple leaf pick tuto­r­ial. As most of you know I love cre­at­ing accents for projects out of book pages. While look­ing around our local Joann Craft Store this week­end I found lots of their Cut­tle­bug dies on clear­ance and I was thrilled when I found this leaf set. I plan on mak­ing a nice clus­ter of oak leaves to accent some Thanks­giv­ing projects. But first I had to try out the Maple Leaf.

Maple Leaf Pick

Sup­plies Used:
Cut­tle­bug Die Cut­ting Machine
Cut­tle­bug Leaf Set Die
Book Page
24 Gauge Wire
Wire Cut­ters
Aleene’s Paper Glaze
Stick­les — Platinum


Die Cut Maple Leaves

Using your Cut­tle­bug and the Maple Leaf Die, cut two leaves out of a book page

Sandwich wire between the two maple leaves using Paper Glaze

Using Aleene’s Paper Glaze apply adhe­sive (I like this adhe­sive as it will not buckle your paper) on the top of one leaf, next place a piece of 24 gauge wire cut to your desired length in the mid­dle of this leaf, now place the sec­ond leaf on top sand­wich­ing the wire in between the two leaves.

Accented Maple Leaf Pick

To fin­ish the leaf pick accent the edges of the Maple leaf using Plat­inum Stick­les. Now you have a per­fect cus­tom made embell­ish­ment to accent any project.

    Very nice! I like this! I imag­ine it will work just as well with my flower punches.

    Yes this would work per­fectly with your flower punches… actu­ally any punch of die. Have fun creating.

    I love the leaf made from the book page, it gives it so much more char­ac­ter. Great stuff Lisa. :)
