The polka dot leaves at 5 orange potatoes got me thinking about circles on leaves. I pulled out my Japanese push drill and its set of removable tips and got to work on more of our pressed leaves. (See the official portrait of my push drill--as well as some awls and bone folders--here).
I gently pressed the punch into the leaf to make these tiny holes. I didn't plan any of the patterns; they emerged as I worked. The size graduation was one of my favorite aspects of the designs.
This is another super easy activity that you could try with your kids. You don't have to buy the fancy tool--try using regular hole punches in a few different sizes.
I may have to add one of these leaves to the giveaway. I am so pleased with how they turned out.
Okay, enough leaves! I've got some sewing coming up in the next post . . .
