Fall-Leaves: Ever wonder what it would be like to have an Autumn wonderland in your house? Sure its a bit unreasonable at first, but not with this craft! What you will need: leaves of all shapes and colors access to a laminator scissors heavy books 1: Collect fresh, colorful leaves (this can be fun) and bring them back to your home. 2: Take each leaf and carefully place them between the pages in books, to press them and make them flat so they don't curl. 3: Give it a few days or a week (a week will make them turn out better) or however long, so that when you check on the leaves, they are flat. 4: Then take they leaves to wherever you are going to laminate them, and do so. 5: Cut the leaves out leaving a bit of laminate around the edge so it doesn't peel off the actual leaf. At this point, you will have flat, colorful long-lasting (waterproof) leaves that you can store, and know that they won't crumble. Laminating leaves really brings out the color too! Its up to your imagination now to do whatever you want to decorate. You could spread then over your table at a autumn feast or tie bunches of them to the roof with string. Have fun!!!
