This holiday season make some lovely gift wrapping paper using leaf prints.
Leaf print craft is a fun activity for kids. If you are making prints on paper, you can use them to wrap gifts. If you are making prints on card stock, you can turn them into beautiful greeting cards and send them to your loved ones.
How much easier can an activity be? Pick up some leaves and paint.
While the painted leaves look great, we did some leaf prints by pressing them down on to a plain card stock.Wrap your gift using hand made gift wrapping sheets. Learn how to make one using the leaf print technique Click To Tweet
