This add-on sketch made me think of origami because of the lines radiating from the center. So I searched online for instructions for making origami leaves similar to the sketch, and I chose this one: http://girltaoqu.com/origami-flower-leaf.html. I wanted to make enough leaves to create a fall wreath for our front door, so I rummaged through my stash for patterned papers that would go with it and started folding.
Once I had enough leaves in an assortment of patterns and sizes, I hot glued clusters of them together before arranging and hot gluing them to the wreath base. I then created a few rolled flowers using cardstock, misted them with iridescent gold Glimmer Mist and nestled them in among the leaves. And now it decorates our front door!
