Instructions
Step 1
For first we have to cut two ginkgo leaves of copper sheet. Print the leaf pattern on the self-adhesive paper and paste it onto a sheet. You can use jewelry saw for this or scissors and file for cutting. Make two leaves of different sizes: one larger, one smaller (you can download my sketch)

In the photo I show 3 leaves that were made in different ways. But you have to make 2 only.
