Not Your Average Dried Leaf

I found something else to use sharpies on....

Decorated Dried Leaves

 Pretty sweet, eh?

If you want to try this, you definitely have to use a fresh, pliable leaf. The old dried ones just crumble when you draw on them.  Draw on it first, then dry it.

You don't even have to be an artist to try this. Just trace the natural outlines and shapes on the leaf itself and add a few extra lines here and there to make it more interesting.

So there you go!
Now you can have leaves that are a bit more awesome than the average dried leaf :)
