You need:

  • paper leaves in different sizes/colors
  • paper straws or sticks
  • pencil and scissors
  • glue
  • stapler

How to:

1)

First, draw the stylized shape of a palm leaf on the paper and cut it, then fold it in half to sign the centre. You can also fold the paper in half first, then draw half leaf and cut it so that you have it perfectly symmetrical.
