All you need to make this is :

Large Leaf

Card Stock

Can of Acrylic Sealer/ Finisher

Hole Puncher

Shoe Lace

Hot Glue Gun


Spray the large leaf with the sealer. 


The sealer is important because it will help the leaf sustain a longer period of it not wilting. Within a few hours of gluing a non-sealed leaf to the cardstock it will wilt and fold up.

Next, trace your leaf on the cardstock.

Cut out the cardstock leaf and glue the leaf down to it using hot glue.
