Steps to Preserving Leaves
After collecting the leaves it’s time to preserve them. There are four methods of doing so:
i. Clean off the leaves and lay them on a piece of waxed paper which is on top of some thick cloth or towel.
ii. On the leaves, lay one more waxed piece of paper.
iii. Then on top of all that lay another cloth similar to the previous to make a sandwich of sorts.
iv. Carefully iron the top towel with your iron set on medium to melt the wax around the leaves. However, do not scorch the wax.
v. After the wax has melted, give it time to cool the cut the leaves out from the wax but leave the border of wax around the leaves to reduce chances of creating a hole where dust and moisture could get to the leaf and damage it.
