project 2 | leaf collecting + matching

Before autumn winds pillage every last bough, we’re gathering up bits of two seasons – a pair of leaves from each old tree – one still green and one turned brittle. They’re laminated, labeled on the back, and squirreled away for a matching game. We have six pair. I’m sure many more will follow.

  1. Nice to meet you too 🙂
    I saw this idea last year at 5 orange potatoes.
    I’m going to collect leaves!

  2. I like this one too…if you put the stems in glycerine for a little bit (a couple of days) before they fall off the tree, the leaves will suck up the glycerine and stay plyable.

  3. this is such a good idea. thanks for sharing it!

  7. I love this idea, before and after, both.

    Welcome back, Gina. Good to see you here, again.

  8. That’s a great idea! We usually iron them between waxed paper, but this would be more lasting for little hands. 🙂

  9. This one is wonderful! I have to think about that: it’s a really good idea.
