Hey, everybody! It’s been a rather dull Saturday, and while in a surprising state of boredom, I took a vibrant red fall leaf from outside and decided to press it as part of my growing collection. You see, I was at Chick-fil-A a couple weeks back and found some leaves that were so beautiful that I wanted to keep them.
When I got home, I wrapped them in a napkin and tucked them in an old, thick school notebook that has those nifty straps around the corners that keep it closed. Then later when I checked on my leaves, I saw that they had pressed wonderfully and decided to make a little hobby of it. I’ve pressed leaves and petals with paper towel, toilet paper, parchment paper, and plain old notebook paper as you can see below.
