    waxed leaves... I love almost anything to do with autumn leaves. Make sure your leaves are completely dry. Melt some beeswax in a double-boiler. You can use new wax or old candle stubs (optional - add a few drops of cinnamon oil). When the wax is thoroughly melted, take the leaves by the stem and immerse them, one at a time, in the wax. Hold them over the pot to drip a bit, then lay them on waxed paper to dry.

I'm going to have to try this!!! I <3 to collect the fall leaves and have yet to figure out how to completely save them!!! ;)
