Default Pressed Leaf Placemats

SUPPLIES:



2 Sheets of clear Con-Tact paper, placemat size
Scissors
Leaves
Waxed paper
Large book, Dictionary, or Encyclopedia


DIRECTIONS:


Gather some fall leaves.
Place each of the leaves between 2 pieces of waxed paper.
Place the leaves inside a large book to flatten them.
After the leaves are flattened, take them out of the book and remove the waxed paper. This may take a day to about a week.
Peel the back off of one of the sheets of clear Con-Tact paper.
Place sticky side up on your work area.
Arrange your leaves on the Con-Tact paper in any way desired.
Peel the backing off of the other sheet of Con-Tact paper and carefully place on top of the leaves.
You can trim around the edges or use decorative scissors to give it a different look.


TIPS:

If you have troubles with trying to work 2 sheets of Con-Tact paper then adhere the first sheet of Con-Tact paper to a piece of construction paper cut slightly smaller than the Con-Tact. Next place the leaves on the construction paper and cover with the 2nd sheet of Con-Tact paper. Trim if necessary.

SUPPLIES:



2 Sheets of wax paper, placemat size
Scissors
Leaves
Waxed paper, for pressing
Large book, Dictionary, or Encyclopedia
Iron
Paper sacks


DIRECTIONS:


Gather some fall leaves.
Place each of the leaves between 2 pieces of waxed paper.
Place the leaves inside a large book to flatten them.
After the leaves are flattened, take them out of the book and remove the waxed paper. This may take a day to about a week.
Cut the paper sack in half, discarding the bottom of the sack.
Place one piece of the paper sack on a safe place to iron (countertop is idea, ask first!)
Preheat your iron to medium setting (no steam).
Place one sheet of wax paper (cut to placemat size) on the sack.
Arrange your leaves on the wax paper in any way desired.
Place the second sheet of wax paper (cut to placemat size) on top of the leaves.
Place the second piece of paper sack to cover.
Iron on the sack, checking to see if the wax paper has adhered together. Let cool.
You can trim around the edges or use decorative scissors to give it a different look.
