Maple Leaf Fragment: Live Laugh Love

Hello, Karenliz here. I’ve been carving cardboard again. This time I used the Maple Leaf Fragment (TCW2048) and a scrap piece of cardboard.

First I traced the fragment on a piece of cardboard. I took my x-acto knife and sliced though the top layer of cardboard and gently pulled it off. Each leaf I carved differently. The largest one I took the inside pieces and the second one I took the outline of the fragment.

Have you carved any cardboard lately? You should try it. It’s lots of fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Wow, this is beautiful! Love how it looks. Must have taken patience. Great job! Love the overall tag too, neat idea to loop the book pages. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
