Things you need:

  3. White glue

  4. Scissors

  5. Sticks, six- or seven-inch long (you can reuse barbecue skewers).


  1. Cut leafs of two sizes, one large and another a bit small, picture 2.

  2. You will need two leaves and a small triangle piece of one centimetre, see picture 3.

  3. Give small cuts around the edges of both the leaves, pictures 4 and 5.

  4. Hold the smaller leaf on top of the bigger while both leaves on top of the stick, tie them tightly, pictures 6 and 7.

  5. Paste glue on the triangle piece and glue it on the other end of the stick, picture 8.
