1. To cre­ate a mono­print, ap­ply a gen­er­ous amount of de­sired color of paint to print­ing plate, us­ing brayer to spread out paint un­til con­sis­tency is like the sur­face of an orange peel.

2. Po­si­tion a leaf on plate and cover with a sheet of copy pa­per. Use brayer to smooth out pa­per. Pick up pa­per and set aside. The area around leaf should have no paint on the plate.

3. Re­move leaf. Place a clean sheet of copy pa­per on plate and use brayer to smooth out pa­per. Re­move pa­per. The leaf print should be trans­ferred onto the pa­per. 4. Op­tion: To cre­ate a mono­print with black back­ground, first cre­ate a ba­sic leaf mono­print as in­structed in steps 1–3. Use this pa­per to re­peat steps 1 and 2 with black paint.

5. Once print is dry, trim to 43/4 x 63/4 inches; round cor­ners. If de­sired, wrap rib­bon around panel and se­cure ends to back.

6. Die-cut la­bel from white card­stock; stamp sen­ti­ment. Ink edges of la­bel and paint as de­sired. Ad­here to panel as shown with foam squares.

7. Form a 5 x 7-inch card from black or white card­stock. Ad­here panel to card. •
