Step 1: Prepare the Leaves
Put the freshly collected leaves in a heavy book for 5 - 10 days to press-dry them.
Take them out when they are perfectly straightened up.
Step 2: Template
Take a pencil and paper.
Fold the paper in half and draw the leaf shape you want.
Cut out the leaf.
Put it over a leaf and draw around it to get the paper leaf's outline.
Cut the leaf according to the outline.
Step 4: Paint
Take acrylic paint and a paint brush. It's better to use shiny colors.
Paint the leaf with golden acrylic paint.
Leave it to dry properly.
When the paint is all dried up, glue all over the leaf with a paint brush.
Take a strainer.
Pour some glitter over the strainer.
Then gently shake the strainer above the glued leaf.
Then leave the leaf to dry.
Done the glittery leaves are ready.
