When the leaves turn from green into beautiful hues of orange, yellow, red and brown, we know it’s time to get crafty. While raking your yard or going for a walk in the park, collect the prettiest leaves and grab your paper punches. These leaf die cuts would look great in paper crafting or Modge Podge projects.
