Make a Card of Webbed Veins [Illustrations by Shinod AP]

The leaves of the peepal tree have a beautiful shape – they taper to a needle-point. And when these green leaves brush against each other, they constantly make a rustling sound and attract everyone’s attention.

Even when the leaves dry, leaving behind a webbed skeleton of veins, they look grand – grand enough to be made into greeting cards.

The things you need:

  1. Peepal leaves

  2. Black chart paper

  3. Scissors

  4. Adhesive

Step 1: Soak the peepal leaf in water for seven to eight hours.

Step 2: Take it out and wash it under running water.

Step 3: Dry it and paste it on top of a card.

Send out these handmade cards to all your friends.
