The changing of the leaves around here have been wonderful. So I grabbed a bunch while walking the puppy and rolled them into roses. Keeping a few real leaves as well.
A bit of glue holds the layers together and some twine at the stems.
I chose smaller, freshly fallen, to med sizes maple leafs and just rolled them like any other paper rolled flower.
The bird was traced and hand cut around. One branch punched. Stamped happy birthday and fussy cut around as well.
The background an embossing folder.
