The first step is to download the free template above and cut out your leaves. You can either cut the template out and trace it on your paper and cut with scissors, or you can upload the .png to your die cutting machine. The best part about leaves is since they have an organic shape, they don't have to be perfect. This is a great project to make by hand.
Once you have your pages cut out, punch a hole in the "stem" of each leaf and put them on a book ring. I chose the Cherry Wood Veneer leaf for the cover. Then you can decorate your cover with your favorite fall embellishments.
I used some patterned papers, leaf stickers, and some fall embellishments I had in my stash to decorate my pages. I also added a rectangle of Pure White paper to each page to use as a mat for the photos I will add later. Here's a peek at my pages. I love the way these turned out!
Don't they all look so pretty fanned out?
