The inspiration for this project was the idea for a leafy Grecian Headband. I didn’t have any extra headbands lying around so for now it is more like a leafy Grecian random decoration… Eventually it will be added onto a headband. The leathers for this project were small swatches found at FabMo. I especially like the embossed alligator-like leather. I used my Sizzix Big Kick Once again to cut out the shapes and actually used a couple of different Sizzix dies, including “Leaves” and “Flower Layers #2”. I used hot glue to attach the pieces to each other, but if anyone has other good ideas for gluing leather together, please let me know!
I wanted something with earthtones so I found these two leather samples in my little stash:
After playing around with some different leaf combinations on my Die-Cutting machine I started to lay out the pattern:
I began to realize that it is a lot of fun to mix and match different shapes from different Sizzix dies, so if you have a few lying around, see what kinds of cool combinations that you can come up with!
