How to make your Splendid Colored Leaf Display:
  1. Using the scissors and ruler, cut a piece that is five inches by five inches from the white cardstock. (see photos).
  2. Take one of the fresh leaves and paint it red. Press the leave down on the cardstock and press a piece of scrap paper on top . (see photos)
  3. Repeat the above step with two other leaves, using orange and yellow paint. Allow the paint to dry. (see photos)
  4. Once the paint is dry, use a black marker to draw leaf stems. (see photos)
  5. Form a box with the popsicle sticks and glue them together. Glue the white cardstock to the back of the popsicle sticks to form a frame. (see photos)
