Take your ruler and pencil in 6 strips on the red construction paper. You want 3 strips to be 9 inches in length and 1 inch in width. You want the other 3 strips to be 5 inches in length and 1 inch in width. Once you have your strips penciled in, begin cutting them out.

Step 3
Once you have all of your red strips taped to the toilet paper roll, draw a leaf on the green construction paper and cut it out. You can also fill in the leaf’s veins with a black market to give it a realistic effect. Once you have your leaf, tape it on the top of a red strip.
