Instructions
  1. Cover work area with plastic table cover or newspaper and have paper towels handy to protect against any possible spills.
  2. Wearing rubber gloves, mix 1-2 tablespoons of well-shaken Rit All-Purpose Liquid Dye or 2 teaspoons of Rit All-Purpose Powder Dye with 1 cup of very hot tap water. You can use a small glass bowl or even a Mason jar for your dyebath, stir well.
  3. Using a spare piece of paper, test the color by dipping it directly into the dyebath. If the color is too light, add more dye; if it is too dark, add more water.
  4. Randomly drop dyes onto paper using a pipette allowing the colors to bleed into one another.
  5. Allow dyes to sit and absorb into the paper, dab any excess off with a paper towel.
  6. Let dry and press between two heavy books to flatten the dyed paper.
  7. Cut into leaf shapes using the Cricut or hand cut using detail scissors.
