When I stumbled across this Leaf Stamping craft on Pinterest (Crafty By Photo), I had to try it out straight away and I am so pleased that I did. I love everything about leaf stamping. It’s simplicity, it’s effectiveness. The intricacies and essence of the leaf is captured beautifully and I can foresee leaf stamping becoming our craft of choice for home made gifts and cards. From Olivia’s perspective, she loved the hammering aspect of leaf stamping, which is a great fine motor activity. Once I had explained how to use the hammer and where to position her hands; under supervision, she was well away!
Materials required for Leaf Stamping:
Carefully peel the kitchen roll and leaf off the paper, to reveal your gorgeous print. A pair of tweezers might be useful to remove the leaf, however our fingers worked pretty well. I am really looking forward to more leaf stamping once Autumn fully kicks in. We experimented with different shades of green and red leaves, with stunning results. Can you imagine how this picture could look with yellow and orange mixed in?
