For this project, we were told to choose a leaf and create a "place for a leaf." The challenge was to create a place to put the leaf that incorporates some qualities of the leaf without the use of any type of binding agent. The entire project had to be made completely out of paper.
After finding my leaf, one of the first things I noticed about it was its texture. When rubbing the leaf in one direction it is somewhat rough, but when you rub it in the opposite direction, it is much more rough. Exploring this quality a little further, I came up with an idea to cut slits in paper so that if you rub your hand over it in one direction it is somewhat rough, but if you rub your hand on it in the other direction, you can feel the sharp spikes, just like my leaf.
