Plastic veins are peeled from the bottom of fabric leaves before they are cut to make palm fronds.

If your fabric leaf has plastic veins on the underside, peel them off the leaf before you cut it into the shape of palm fronds. The plastic veins will get in the way of your cuts for the frond. On most fabric leaves the veins will simply peel away from the edge back to the wire center of the leaf, where you can trim them away from the center vein.
