Broad Leaf Long Grass
Strip LeafFor this leaf, keep 2 strips together and pull them apart.
Adopt the same method as above but make sure you taper the leaf less and when curving the loops open, ensure you pull so that it is like a semi circle with the bottom straight as shown. In this case, the straight side will be the longest loop. when pulling keep it as straight as possible. Pinch the other end to straighten the bottom line which is the mid vein of the leaf. Here the loops are glued to the side of the leaf.
If you want the leaf like the pic below where the loops are glued to the mid vein you should bow the longest loop and straighten the loop side as shown below. Its only a matter of shaping the leaf and deciding which side you want to keep straight.
Now glue 2 halves to complete the leaf and you are done!!
I would love to have your feedback and comments once you try it out.
