Not an artist? Not a problem! You can achieve a gorgeous watercolor effect with only leaves or flowers, cardstock, a paper towel, and a hammer. Leaf printing looks great on stationary and cards, and larger prints can even be used as room decor! This is a project for older kids, since it involved a real-life hammer, but little ones do enjoy watching the magic as you peel the leaf back to reveal the print. At least, my little one sure does. The result is professional looking and elegant, but the process is simple!
