Now, let do it!!!
Type 01: Dianthus paper leaf craft
Cut light green crepe paper with the size of 7cm * 24cm then fold it into 8 according to the length of the paper. Use scissors to cut bevel the sides of the paper to make leaf shape.
Because the leaves are quite small lead to you need a bit of dexterity. Use bright green tape to tie the leaves together in layers then continue until full of wire. Finally, you need to adjust to shape the leaf.
Type 02: Rose paper leaf craft
First cut the pieces of crepe paper with a size of 6cmx15cm. Then cut diagonally to make 2 half triangles.
Flip one plate over so that the vertical line of the paper is directed from bottom to top. Attach 2 halves together and cut into leaf shape.
Using brown flower tape to connect leaves together, note alternately wrapping the leaves in layers. Adjust the wire to create the most realistic leaf shape.
Type 03: Money paper leaf handcraft
Cut a piece of blue crepe paper with a width of 5cm, then stretch to reduce the shrinkage of the paper. Fold it in 6 times.
Using an oval shape size 4.5cm * 4cm put on the paper has just folded and cut, you have the desired easy crepe paper leaf.
Spread glue to attach the wire to the center of the leaf. Attach 2 halves together and cut into a leaf shape.
