Where is there a place that sells leaves and stems for trees? Am looking to add some to a few pages but can't find them anywhere. Can you use real ones and do you have to do anything to them to keep them from ruining a lo?
I would STRONGLY anti-recommend using actual plant matter on a layout. You can usually buy fabric tree leaves in the fake flower sections of craft stores, especially in the fall, or you can buy pre-cut leaf shapes or dies to cut them out yourself. You can also buy fabric leaves intended for scrapbooking, but not in a wide variety of shapes.
I agree; using real leaves is tricky and could end very badly!
If you have a dollar store, you can get a bunch of the fake silk leaves for just pennies a piece. Otherwise, they're still really cheap at Walmart, etc.
Thank you everyone. I'll try the dollar stores first. The ones I seen look so real that I was wondering about it. I'm glad I asked. This gives me a great start in finding types I'm looking for. Any is better than none. Thanks again!
