Instructions

Step 1 Use your scissors to cut along the entire length of the leaf’s stem. When you’re done, you’ll have two vertical halves of the leaf; however, one side will still have the stem.

TIP: Keep the stemless half and set the other aside. You may want to make a second framed leaf that’s a mirror image of the first (be sure to cut away the stem so it will lay flat against the glass) or you may just like to tuck it away for a future project. We do that a lot!

Step 2 Open up the frame and set the leaf inside. Place the stem’s cut edge right up against the long edge of the frame.

TIP: For smaller leaves, you can also center in the frame as an individual or in multiples. Some leaves have too thick of a stem to fit between the glass of the frame. Be mindful of this when choosing and purchasing leaves. 

Step 3 Now, close the frame back up again. Hang your newly framed leaf (or leaves) where they can be seen and admired. That’s all there is to it!
