To make palm fronds from paper instead of fabric plant leaves, cut roughly oval shapes with a slight point on one end as shown in the photo. Double the sheet of paper to make two identical cuts for each leaf. You will need one paper leaf for the top and one for the bottom of the leaf, with a length of fabric or paper covered wire glued in the center (see the next step).
