Cassie Stephens put together this tutorial as part of an art class for second graders. It’s pretty simple and, frankly, kind of magical! All you need to try this at home is the following:

  • gelatin
  • cookie sheets
  • printmaking brayer (available at most craft stores)
  • printing ink
  • leaves
  • paper

Once you’ve gathered your supplies and are ready to found out how this awesome process works, head over to Cassie’s blog!
